Send them to the Biology Lab, (RM 2 1 2 Frame) for 
re-use. Imhoff s Fine Arts (in Titusville) serves as 
a regional "recycling" center for styrofoam pea- 
nuts, shells, squares etc. Don't coat the earth's crust

generations (plus I and all sorts of other famous 
world dignitaries) thank you.

Bible Study 

I would like to start a bible study at Venango 
Campus. I would be available to lead the study 

on Tuesdays or Thursdays 9:00 a.m. - 1 1:00 a.m. 
Each study would last about an hour depending 
on schedules of those attending, and would also 
depend on the availability of a place to hold it. 
The study would concentrate on a specific topic 

or chapter of the Bible. Interested persons 
please see me, Ali Stewart or leave your name 

and phone number with Kim Price, Rm 209 MH. 


I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all 
new students and returning students to another 
great semester at Venango Campus. Here are a few 
reminders to get you started in the right direction. 

1 . Books are only in the Bookstore for one month. 

2. Books can be returned for a refund or credit the 
first two weeks of the semester with a receipt. After 
the first two weeks, a student must have the receipt 
and a withdrawal slip to to return books. New 
books being returned for a refund must have no 
marks whatsoever in them. 

3. Student charges (PELL-PHEAA-JTPA-VA) are 
only in effect for three weeks. Charges end Sep- 
tember 16th. 

4. I am here to accommodate you. Please let me

Let's have a good semester, 

From the 1994 Edition of the Oil City Review: 


Each week we will be bringing you excerpts from the past three volumes of The 

Oil City Review for your reading pleasure and hopefully to also inspire the writer 

in you to share with us your work and consider submitting at least one of your 

works to the 1995 issue of the Review. 

This week we are showcasing Kristen George's 

An Awakening 

/ am a delicate seed. 

Rich soil is my incubator, 
A maternal sun nurtures my frail stem 

pushing through the earth and growing 
%0rongerfrom the thorns of tragedy, 
I My broad leaves awaken to stretch to 
I saturate themselves with raindrops that spill, 

quenching my innermost thirsts. 
Red velvet petal of my soul, once hidden beneath 

thick foliage now immerge,„blossoming,„ 
I am now a perfect rose. 

It is not too soon to be thinking about your submission to the 1995 edition of the 
Oil City Review. Get out your pen and let your creativity spill out! All students 
I are encouraged to submit that essay you wrote and worked so hard on to the 
Review. The Review considers short stories and poetry from all students, staff, 
faculty and community members each year. Early submissions can be placed in

An Excerpt From 

Katie Eckert 

A Dusty Road 

When I look out my window 

I can see a busy road. 

Sometimes it turns to laughter, 

Sometimes it turns to sorrow, 

And other times it turns to confusion. 

Forever flowers via 
the microwave 

To save the last rose of summer, or 
any beautiful bloom, try drying it 
in your microwave oven. Here's 
how to do it. 

First you need a drying agent 
like silica gel from the craft store, 
or kitty litter will do. Then pick 
your favorite flower and cut the 
stem to half an inch. 

Pick a microwaving container 
deep enough so the flower can be 
completely covered by the drying 
agent, and follow these steps: 

• Put an inch of the agent in the 
bottom. Insert the stem so the 
flower is in an upright position. 
Carefully sprinkle the drying agent 
over and between all petals, keep- 
ing them in the position you want. 
Continue sprinkling until entirely 

• Microwave on high for ZVz 
minutes, rotating every half 

• Remove the container. Set aside 
and do not disturb at all for 12 
hours while the moisture from the 
flower is being absorbed. 

Carefully remove the flower and 
tap gently to remove the drying 
agent. Attach a false stem. 

Do only one flower at a time for 
best results. Save the drying agent 
for future use.

Campus To Be 

Smoke -Free 

By The Year 2000? 

Smokers had a shock their first day of class, no 
more smoking in Rhoades Center. 

This may have been a surprise to smokers, but 
it is not a new policy. A Tobacco Use Policy was 
adopted by Clarion University Faculty Senate on 
May 1 , 1 989 with a long term goal to make Clarion 
a totally smoke-free campus by the year 2000. 

Policy #3, Smoking is prohibited in any com- 
mon use work area (i.e., an area in which two or 
more people work without oermanent walls or 
floor-to-ceiling room dividers and doors)" and 
Policy #4, "Smoking is prohibited in the corridors 
of all University buildings" were cited as the basis 
for recent change. 

Dr. Barbara Reagle, Director Student Develop- 
ment, noted that smoking has been an on-going 
issue that both the Student Senate and Faculty 
Senate at Venango Campus have been working on 
for years. The concerns of all students have been 
weighed in an effort to accommodate both the 
smokers and the non-smokers. Last year the stu- 
dent union area was divided, the smokers by the 
windows and the non-smokers in the front. How- 
ever, there have been complaints from sensitive 

Dr. Reagle indicated that two areas had been 
investigated previously for designated smoking, 
room 1 1 8 in Frame Hall and the lower lobby area 
Rhoades. Both sites, however, have been rejected. 
Room 1 1 8 is scheduled for classes and the lower 
lobby has been described as a "corridor." 

While the weather has been pleasant the first 
few days of class, smokers have to be thinking back 
to January, 1994's artic temperatures as they con- 
gregate outside Rhoades entrance. The year 2000 
does not sound so distant any more. 

This writer encourages letters to the editor with 
opinions on this subject.

cert halls, on television, radio, 
from New York to San Fran- 
cisco, to Leningrad.

with a three octave vocal range; 
Lori Glaser, a sultry voiced jazz 
singer; Jeffrey Kom, a dynamic

Smoking on Campus: 
Crime and Punishment? 

An article appeared in the Sep- 
tember 5 edition of the Voice 
about the smoking policy here at 
Venango . The article outlined 
the reasoning behind the fact that 
there are no longer any desig- 
nated indoor smoking areas. 

One of the reasons cited for the 
ban on smoking in Rhoades was 
that sensitive non-smokers had 
complained. As a smoker, I don't 
feel that this is a fair decision. 
First of all, I have personally 
witnessed non-smokers sitting in 
the smoking section complain- 
ing about the smoke. What kind 
ofreasoningisthat? Ridiculous! 
My other problem with this 
rationale is the fact that the fac- 
ulty and Student Senates have 
chosen to side with the more po- 
litically correct non-smokers 
rather than giving equal consid- 
eration to both sides. You would 
never see the school administra- 
tion force non-smokers to stand 
outside in the middle of winter 
simply because the smokers didn't 
approve of them not smoking. 

In conclusion, yes smoking is a 
personal choice. No, my decision 
to smoke shouldn't have to affect 
people who choose not to smoke. 
However, smoking is still a legal 
activity in this country, and un- 
less it is banned at the state or 
federal level, smokers here at 
Venango should be treated as 
human beings who happen to have 
a different life-style choice, and 
not as a criminals. At the very 
least, give us somewhere warm 
to smoke this winter. 

Dave Burnett-CUP Student 

Student Senate 

Kathy Kahle of the Student 
Senate reports that the Senate is 
reviewing various possibilities for 
indoor smoking on campus. 

The Senate encourages stu- 
dents both smokers and non- 
smokers, to voice their opinions, 
concerns and/or suggestions re- 
garding the smoking policy to 
Interim Dean, Dr. Grunenwald. 
Appointments may be made at 
the Frame Office.

The Cultural Diversity 

Committee of Venango 

Displays Native American History 

And Culture 

Columbus Day is just a month away. What 
better time than this to pay tribute to all Native 
Americans, past and present. For over 10,000 
years, this land was inhabited by tribes of Native 
Americans (a.k.a. "Indians"). 

Since Christopher Columbus came to this hemi- 
sphere, however, western Europeans have me- 
thodically taken land, livelihood, and liberty from 
these first Americans. Treaty after treaty was bro- 
ken by the greedy and deceitful intruders. In the last 
500 years, the Native Americans have been slaugh- 
tered, forcibly removed from homelands, and often 
confined to life on reservations. 

It also seems apt to acknowledge the reverence 
with which Native Americans have treated the 
Earth. In these days of never ending environmental 
crises, it is especially fitting to appreciate the 
harmony in which Native Americans lived with the 
Earth. The myopia of "western ingenuity" has 
dotted this land with toxic waste sites, radioactive 
dumps, and daily accidents that threaten the viabil- 
ity of life on this planet. 

The Cultural Diversity Committee at Venango 
Campus has received a grant from the Clarion 
University Foundation to purchase books about 
Native American history and culture. These mate- 
rials, which illustrate the ways and wisdom of 
American Indians will be on display in the lobby of 
Suhr Library during the Fall semester.

Who enjoys construction work, 
worked in the fitness field for 1 8 
years and can tell you how to 
afford college tuition? 

Angel Muschweck 

As Coordinator of Placement 
Services, Angel assists students 
in writing resumes and honing 
job interview skills. She pro- 
vides financial services regard- 
ing student loans and govern- 
ment grants, but also can help 
students with budgeting and lo- 
cating community resources. 
Angel's office is in Montgomery 
Hall, room 206. 

Angel graduated from Slip- 
pery Rock University with a 
Bachelor Degree in Physical Edu- 
cation/Exercise Physiology, 
worked in the fitness field and at 
a business school in Pittsburgh 
before coming to Venango Cam- 
pus in 1991. 

Angel lives in Pleasantville 
with her husband and three chil- 
dren. Her two daughters are in 
college studying plastics engi- 
neering and her sone is in high 
school and is interested in elec- 

Angel's favorite pastime is lo- 
cating, buying and rehabbing "less 
than desirable" real estate. (Yes, 
she enjoys construction work!) 

Angel has the following advice 
for students: 


* Plan NOW to afford school 
next year - especially scholar- 
ships. Angel has software and 
reference materials. Make an 
appointment to meet with her. 

* Read newspaper stories, bul- 
letin boards in churches or gro- 
cery stores and campus posters 
for scholarship offers. 

* Consult the guidance office 
of your former high school as 
well as high schools in the Ve- 
nango area. They may have in- 
formation on scholarships spe- 
cifically for returning adults. 

* Consult clubs and organiza- 
tions representing your major, 
thee are books in the Career Cen- 
ter, room 21 1 Montgomery Hall 
with lists of names and addresses 
of such organizations. 

* Consider Clarion's financing 
program, through ACADEMIC 
You can make monthly payments 
for tuition the year round. There 
is a $50 up-ft'ont fee, but no inter- 
est. Brochures may be obtained 
from Angel or in the Frame Hall 

* Meet with Angel to set up a 
personal budget, or to locate com- 
munity resources. 

Job Placement 

* Start preparing your resume 
now! Fill a folder with your 
student and volunteer activities, 
any special skills you have ac- 
quired, workshops attended (in- 
dicate the date) and samples of 
any special projects you have 
worked on as assignments. 

"* Use the Placement Office's la- 
ser printer to produce professional 
resumes at a reasonable cost. 

* Practice mock interviews, and 
have them video taped. See An- 
gel for details. 

* Conduct informational inter- 
views. Visit knowledgeable 
people in your field to discover 
what jobs are available. 

* Try job shadowing. Tag along 
on ajob with a person in the field 
that you are studying to discover 
if you really like this type of 

* Get job experience in your field. 
This is very important. Experi- 
ence can be a paid position, a co- 
op or volunteer experience. 

Angel's goal is to make sure 
that no student quits school due 
to a financial burden. 

Financial services, placement 
services — sounds like Angel can 
help students "construct" their 
careers as well!

Dave Katis Joins Campus Staff 

By Peg VanHorn 
Bulletin Writer 

Dave Katis can be described 
in just one word — excited! 

As the newly appointed, full 
time Assistant Director of Ad- 
missions and Coordinator of Re- 
cruitment for Venango Campus, 
Dave is excited about a lot of 

He is EXCITED about the 
challenge of recruiting traditional 
and returning adult students to 
Venango Campus; EXCITED 
about marketing the Venango 
Campus; EXCITED about the 
warm reception he has received 
from the administration, faculty, 
and students. 

Dave hopes his excitement will 
be contagious, too. He encour- 
ages students to ask their friends 
the same questions they ask them- 
selves. Where do you want to be 
in two years, in four years? Just 
two years older, or two years 
older with an associates degree? 
Just four years older, or four years 
older with a bachelors degree? 

Dave says his "door is always 

open!" Bring potential students 
to his office, Frame Hall, Rm. 
217 (Monday-Thursday), or 
schedule an appointment through 
him or the Frame office. 

While Dave is excited about 
all his recruitment responsibili- 
ties, he wants to be especially 
attuned to the uniqueness of re- 
turning students, each with an 
individual history and particular 

Once a recruit conquers that 
first hurdle, the door step to Frame 
Hall, Dave wants to "walk them 
through" the admissions process, 
answering questions, assisting 
with applications and exploring 
financial aid resources. 

Other recruitment areas that 
Dave is pursuing are; continuing 
the "Back To The Future" infor- 
mational forum held several times 
a year for the community; inter- 
acting with business leaders to 
learn what special needs they may 
have that Venango can fill, and 
updating them on what Venango 
has to offer already, and attend- 
ing college fairs at local schools 
to market the Venango Campus 
of Clarion University. 

Dave Katis 
Clarion Alumni 

Dave knows all about being a 
student at the Clarion Campus, 
earning a Bachelors Degree in 
Communications and a Masters 
Degree in Education. But he 
wants to know about Venango 
Campus ~ first hand, from the 
students. He is working with a 
group of students in Dr. Huber's 
Business Writing class, drawing 
on what they remember were their 
concerns as new students. 

Before coming to Venango 
Campus, Dave worked as Direc- 
tor of Marketing and Public Re- 
lations at Clarion Hospital and 
was Administrative Director of 
the Clarion University Football

How To Hone 
Your Writing Skills 

by Dave Burnett 
Writer for The Voice 

Acceptable college writing is 
one of the hardest skills for a 
new student to master. The 
Write-Inn Center located at 105 
Frame Hall is the place to go 
for help. 

According to Dr. Joan 
Huber, writing center advisor, 
the purpose of the Write-Inn is 
to help students produce the 
best papers possible. 

The staff of nine writing 
tutors won't do your work for 
you, but they will help you 
with style, punctuation and 

Students are asked to bring 
in work early in the writing 

process. They are also re- 
minded that no appreciable 
help is available if students 
come in with blank paper the 
day before a paper is due. 

Current hours for help: 
Monday, 11:30 am - 8pm 
Tuesday, 8:30 am -4:30 pm 
Wednesday, 8:30 am - 8 pm 
Thursday, 1 1 am- 1 pm 

Student Stevette Wood says, 
"Every paper I completed last 
semester was critiqued near 
time of completion, by the 
Write-Inn tutors. In every case, 
my grade was considerably 

In addition to the help in 
construction and writing your 
paper, the Write-Inn can format 
and print it on one of the four 
IBM or two Apple computers it 
has available.

in your writing endeavors.

Dr. Bill Belzer and Box Turtles 

By Lee Masters 

When I was a tot, there were Box turtles 
aplenty, along the creeks and rivers. 

Where I grew up, we would go for water 
hikes and find these interesting (vertebrate) 
turtles just to watch them pull into their shell and 
close the door. 

It wasn't uncommon to have one in the class- 
room as a pet or even at home. My mom thought 
a turtle a preferable pet to a dog or a cat. I was 
even allowed to decorate his shell. 

As I got older, and out grew my friend, I 
opted to return him to the creekbed where I 
found him. Little did I know. 

This is a pretty common scenario which has 
helped push the turtle onto the endangered 
species list, according to Bill Belzer. Dr. Belzer 
is dedicated to helping the turtle, through the 
McKeever Conservation Center. 

The life span of this creature has been logged 
at more than 120 years if left alone in it's native 
woods. They do not reproduce during their first 
10 to 15 years. Continued land development has 
depleted their habitat, while continued collecting 
for pets, have caused the turtle to almost disap- 
pear. The wild turtle is even being collected and 
exported to Europe, by the tens of thousands, 
because this activity has been banned there. 
The catch and release route doesn't work 
either. Returning a turtle back into his habitat 
after being a pet, introduces disease to the 
whole. Some "good hearts" will catch the turtle 
and move them to another location they want 
populated. This action puts the turtle in jeop- 
ardy and upsets the natural balance. They must 
be left alone. 

The turtle is intelligent and beneficial to our 
ecological system. Hopefully, and with your 
help, our children and grandchildren won't come 
to know the Box Turtle through picture books. 

Fund Raiser for Turtle Conservation 

To raise funds to help a turtle recovery project 
I'll be involved with (for decades, if I live that 
long!), I have turtle conservation bumper stick- 
ers to sell for $3. Also I arranged to buy a small 
supply of official Tee shirts (with a wonderful 
logo of various world turtles) left fi-om last 
summer's International Conference On Turtle 
Conservation held in NY. Selling price is appx. 
$18. All margin above cost goes into the turtle 
work. And I can order (4-6 week shipping) a 
variety of really neat weatherproof sculptures of 
turtles, iguanas, bunnies, frogs squirrels, bear 
cubs, etc. (you can see them in a catalog I have). 
If you're interested in any of these things, get in

Co-Facilitators Named For Anti-Oppression Workshop 

Dr. Pat Griffin, associate professor of the 
Social Justice Education Program at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Amherst, will be one of 
two presenters at the Friday anti-oppression 
workshop at Venango Campus. 

Co-facilitating the workshop with her is Dr. 
Sharon J. Washington, assistant professor in the 
Leisure Studies Department, Kent State Univer- 
sity, Kent, OH. 

According to Dr. Washington, she and Dr. 
Griffin met at a conference on recreation where 
they realized their interests coincided. They 
found they were doing similar work in their 
respective fields. As a result of their collabora- 
tion, this is the fourth workshop they have done 

The conference will endeavor to present 
diversity, multi-culturalism and give an ap- 
proach to the inter-relatedness of all forms of 

Dr. Washington indicated that it is hoped 
that people will take away a greater awareness of 
how they fit into society. Also, she stated that 
certain actions can unintentionally perpetrate 

She indicated, "the issues are complex. 
Many people do not realize what they are do- 

She indicates there are personal, institutional 
and cultural levels of oppression. There is an 
inter-relatedness but there is no hierarchy of 
oppression worse than another. 

The workshop will be from 9 am to 1 pm in 
Rhoades Center. 


The Washington Sisters, Sharon and Sandra, 
will appear at 7:30 pm Friday evening at 
Rhoades Center. 

These talented twins will present a program 
of jazz, swing, blues, Brazilian, ballads, country 
and gospel music. 

According to Sharon, they perform in a style 
for everyone. 

The Washington Sisters have been perform- 
ing for nearly eleven years and have appeared in 
all but six states. 

They consider their offering to be both 
political and community work. 

The pair, along with their musician mother, 
began singing when they were in high school. 

Pianist for the pair is Melanie Monsur who 
lives in Santa Fe, NM. Ms. Monsur is a profes- 
sional musician who will perform some of her 
original pieces as a part of the evening's enter- 
tainment. She has accompanied the Washington 
Sisters for nearly eight years. 

Sandra Washington is an outdoor recreation 
planner for the National Park Service. She 
recently completed the Brown VS Board of 
Education National Historic Site as a part of her

Kim lives in Oil City with 
her husband and two dogs. 
And, yes, Kim's eighth great 
grandmother, Rebecca Nurse, 
was one of nineteen people put 
to death for witchcraft during 
the witch hysteria in 1692 in 
Salem, Mass. It is believed that 
Mrs. Nurse's execution was the 
result of an individual's want- 
ing a large parcel of property 
she owned. (The witchcraft 
hysteria died off when the 
Governor's wife was accused as 

■n! ai! '111. 

ouic!' ill 

The family homestead is still 
in Massachusetts and is a 
historic site. 

Kim is President and founder 
of the Oil City Fine Arts

is to promote dance, theatre, 
music, films, and video, cre- 
ative writing, and poetry, 
painting, sculpture and other

Kim is a member of the Oil 
Heritage Region Cultural 
Development and Assessment 
Team, has been a board mem- 
ber of Belle Lettre (a former

Dk Barb Reagle Says,,., 

''Keep A Balance In Life" 

By Peg VanHorn 

"Keep a balance in life," stresses Dr. Barbara 
Reagle, Director of Student Development. "Go 
easy on yourself! If you fall, at least you are 
going in the right direction — forward." Reject 
any "negative tapes that play in your head." 
Nurture a positive attitude. "Have fun! Be the 
best person you can be!" 

This is the advice Barb gives students, but 
how does she keep balance in her life have fun? 

Reading Dostoevskii (one of the world's great 
writers who influenced modem literature, 1821- 
1881), motorcycling the backwoods on her new 
Honda Shadow 500, releaming the piano after 
30 years, running the bike trail daily and arming 
coworkers with squirt guns the first day of class, 
will help to balance the intellectual, the physical 
and the fun. 

Barb's interest in wellness is rooted in her 
undergraduate work in physical education with a 
BS & Masters degree from Slippery Rock 
University. She earned a PH.D. from the Uni- 
versity of Pittsburgh in Higher Education with 
an emphasis on Student Affairs, Administration 
and Counseling. 

Before CUP-Venango, Barb worked at Villa

I'm concerned for all those 
students out there on campus 
who may be having difficulty 
with their car. Last semester 
mine had a mind of its own and 
I could do nothing to dissuade 
it from breaking down. 

When it decided it didn't 
want to start, I went immedi- 
ately to my student phone 
numbers. I contacted people 
who lived near me whether I 
knew them or not. 

I made it to class, some- 
times late, but "better late than

I love the autumn season. Autumn, to me, is like 
seeing a very special friend that you haven't seen for such 
a longtime, the kind of friend that you would call a soul- 
mate. You wrap your arms around each other in such a 
tight all consuming embrace that actually makes you feel 
an inner peace and yet you feel as if you might explode 
from the joy it brings. Sometimes I am autumn, every- 
thing about autimin, the colors.... reds, golds, browns, 
oranges, and grays. I am the smells of autumn... dead 
leaves, the inside of a carved pujnpkin, the smell of cold 
fresh air, but I am so much more than a season. 

I am a six year old girl that stomps her dry tennis 
shoes into a deep rain puddle, and then laugh at how 
much fun it really is. I am a woman/child who eyes up 
the snow that the mall maintenance plows into mountains 
of white. When my mouth cracks into a mischievous 
grin, my children know that their 'grown' mother will 
jump feet first into that mountain. Guiltily, I inwardly 
chuckle at my thirteen year old's red, embarrassed face. 
He has so much to learn about life. 

Sometimes I am an eighty year old woman "tsking" at 
how bizarre and cold the world seems. There are times 

when I am no age at all young or old. I am 

infinity, in both directions. 

Sometimes I am one and the same with thunder- 
storms. I stand outside with my glasses off, face uplifted 
to catch the droplets, absorb them into my skin. I listen 
with my heart pounding to all of the rumbling crashes 
that make it seem as if someone has their bass turned all 
the way up, the way you feel loud drums in the pit of 
your gut. The dark sky lights up all the way around you 
and you can't even really tell where the bolt of lightning 
was centered. Once in a while, I become that eighty year 
old woman again and go back inside, wondering if I 
could be, almost, insane, and then watch the storm from 
behind a pane of glass. 

At certain times when the moon is full, I go outside, 
with music from my stereo playing loud enough to hear 
without waking the kids., and I dance. Occasionally, I try 
to include my children, their eyes drink up the view of 
twinkles and beams, they yawn and go back to bed. If a 
friend happens to be there when the urge strikes, I then 
drag her/him outside to praise the moon along with me. 
Some of my friends never come back at nighttime, but 
others make a point to; (beauty being in the eye of the 
beholder and all.) 

Most of the time I am a single mother struggling to 
raise two children. Most of the time 1 am a 'housewife 
trying to keep the bills paid, praying the car will last 
another year, wishing better things for my children, trying 
to maintain the house and yard work. Most of the time I 
worry that I won't get the job that a hundred other people 

Editors Notes: 

Trapper Writes On Smoking Policy 

Dear Editors, 

Well another semester is upon us, and as I look forward with 
trepidation to another loaded course schedule, I am embarking 
on a new journey; Main! 

Everyone should try this place. The diversity of students is 
awesome. Coming here from our scheduled niche is an eye- 
opening experience that you, as a student, have to encounter to 

Enough of this frivolity, let us get to the reason for my 
writing. I has been told by many campus students that there is 
now a NO SMOKING policy for YOUR student center. While 
there have also been a change in the snack shop of>eration. The 
latter will have future benefits down the road, but the former 
issue has been wrangled about for at least three years. 

It was related to me that Rhoades is like a "GHOST TOWN", 
in that the majority of the populace that used the facility are 
now forced to the outside. As this may be a good idea now, the 
weather in the coming months will necessitate an undue 
hardship to smokers. I have also learned that a new agreement 
with the proprietors of the snack bar is causing some consterna- 
tion due to the fact that initial sales figures are not what were 
expected. (How do you think that happened?) 

I recall that we as a Senate discussed this very issue in the 
1992-93 term, and that it was suggested that smoke eaters be 
installed in the center. A committee was set up to look into 
there cost, and a decision to purchase these units tabled due to 
budget constraints. However, there was money to acquire much 
needed grills for the use of our many cookouts. 

In my investigation of the matter, I contacted the campus 
maintenance staff, and was told that the air exchanger that 
circulates fresh air in the building has the capacity to exchange 
the air completely every seven minutes, and it is currently not 
being used to maximum capacity (this may necessitate 
verification on your part), which could allow for the return of 
the silent majority to enjoy the center once again. 

It is my hope that the current Student Senate would pursue 
this violation of student rights and solve this matter A.S.A.P. 
to everyone's satisfaction. 

Here is to a great semester, 
Lynn (Trapper) McDonald 

apply for that would earn enough money to raise my children 
on. At times I look around and I do see the darkness, but 

Oh, sometimes I have wings that span fifty feet or more, 
and I soar until the atmosphere starts getting thin. I don't fly 
back down to earth right away, no, I savor every second that 
my soul is blessed with those wonderful feathers. It's as though 
my wings are always there, they just seem to fold up for a 
period of time. When I really need them they seem to sense it, 
and then they begin to extend. 

My name is JoAnn. According to Funk & Wagnall's 
Home and Student Dictionary ( 1 989) p. 620. JoAnn is " 
feminine of John [Heb] Yahweh is gracious". JoAnn means so 
much more, listen very intently. ..she. ..JoAnn. ...infinity, 
autumn, six years old, thunderstorms, feathers, full moons, rain 
puddles, an old woman, wings, single mother, wishing, 
darkness, hope, laughter, childhood.... 
Funk & Wagnall have no idea what JoAnn means.

I recently received a 
returned Student Services 
Survey with a negative com- 
ment that initially upset me. 
Unfortunately, the student 
chose not to sign the survey so 
I couldn't be of help to him/her 
at this point. Perhaps I can 
give some information that will 
keep other students in the 
future fi-om having the same 

First, the comments on the 

"After graduating Summa 
Cum Laude with an Associate 
Degree in computers, the only 
job I was contacted about was a 
sales position in a toy store. 
No suggestions were made 
toward improving my resume 
or building a credential file, 

The student indicated that 
they had made use of the 
Placement Services offered 
here on campus. I wonder 
exactly what use the student 
made of the experience. 

All students at Venango 
Campus have the opportunity 
to attend at least four different 
Job Search Skills Workshops 
annually. In these workshops 
resume construction is elabo- 
rated upon and the student is 
encouraged to make individual 
appointments to continue to 
upgrade that resume. A fin- 
ished resume is never finished. 
The resume may change 
slightly with every different job 
opportunity depending on what 

the student needs to emphasize 
for that particular job. At the 
Job Search Skills Workshops. 
Credential File papers are 
distributed and are also avail- 
able by walking down to 206 
Montgomery Hall and asking 
for them. 

Placement Services gives 
very specific instructions for 
building a credential file if one 
will take the necessary time to 
do the leg work. From the 
comment of the above student 
he/she waited for the employer 
to contact him/her. Attending 
any of the workshops or having 
an individual appointment 
would have enlightened this 
student concerning the present 
day job search. One cannot 
wait around to be contacted. 
One must constantly be net- 
working and perhaps be willing 
to relocate, especially if the 
major selected is accounting. 
Please start early to plan your 
job search. Don't find yourself 
in the position of the above 
student. Take control of your 
future. Ask questions, don't 
stop till you get an answer. Job 
search skills are every bit as 
important as the information 
learned in classes. Take advan- 
tage of the good workshop 
information and the opportu- 
nity to have individual atten- 
tion. It will take time, effort, 
and a take charge attitude on 
the part of the student. Do you 
have what it takes? I hope so!

Interim Dean 

''To Keep Things Moving 

By: Peg VanHoni-Voice Writer 

Dr. Joseph Grunenwald, Interim Executive 
Dean, might have an interim position, but he is 
determined that his administration will not be 
merely transitional. "I want to make sure things 
keep moving," says Dean Grunenwald. Commu- 
nity relations, permanent staffing and develop- 
ment of new curricula cannot wait until a new 
dean is in place. 

According to Dr. Grunenwald, area citizens, 
business people, government agencies and 
school guidance departments need to know what 
Venango Campus has to offer. Likewise, Ve- 
nango Campus needs to learn what it can do for 
the community. Dr. Grunenwald, along with 
Dave Katis, newly appointed Assistant Director 
of Admissions, Dr. Barbara Reagle, Director of 
Student Development, and other staff plan to 
continue this exchange with the community. 

Venango can help the community through 
continued examination of two year programs in 
health related fields, such as the Occupational 
Therapy program Richard Sabousky is review- 
ing. Other possibilities are two year mechanical 
and engineering technology programs. 

Dr. Grunenwald is excited about the new 
campus day care center and hopes to expand 
other student support systems as well. 

"Venango has a special blend of students," 
says Dr. Grunenwald. They are focused and 
involved. Their education combined with 
previous work and life experiences will enhance 
their future job prospects, (cont. pg 2, col. 2)

Do I Really Need This? 

While sitting in class have you ever asked 
yourself, "when am 1 ever going to use this?", or 
"Why do I need to know this?" 

Many students feel that certain classes have 
nothing to do with their majors, and question the 
relevancy of taking the class. 

Student Services is offering an open lecture 
by Dr. Martha Ritter, associate professor of 
Biology, on why certain general education 
classes are required. 

General education class requirements and a 
question and answer session will be held at 
noon, Thursday in Rhoades Center. 

A light lunch will be provided.

Dr. Grunenwald holds a bachelor's degree 
in engineering from Youngstown State, and 
master's and doctorate degrees in business 
administration from Kent State. He has worked 
as construction and programming engineer for 
the Department of Transportation, has been an

four children: Paul, a machinist, Kristen, a

Venango Christian and Ann a sophomore at 
Venango Christian. 

In closing, Dr. Grunenwald summarized, "I 
have a basic faith that if one does the right thing, 
good things will happen." Dr. Grunenwald's 
goal to interact with the community and to 
support faculty, staff and students is sure to 
make "good things happen" at Venango.

A Review By Carol Boyle 

The Audience sat spell- 
bound as poet-laureate, 
Gwendolyn Brooks, shared her 
poetry October 2 in Hart 
Chapel, Clarion University. 

This small black lady of 77 
years spoke with a strong 
voice, a wonderful sense of 
humor and firm convictions. 

Her poetry affirmed her 
impressions of life in Black 

Her expression was bold 
and straight forward. She was 
speaking in messages to us all. 

This tiny lady with the 
strong voice, that, at once, can 
draw you in, make you smile 
and also bring tears to your 

Her poetry is broad and her 
subjects familiar to us all. 

Miss Brooks explained that 
she dislikes the term Afiican- 
American. She would much 
rather be called Black. " Black 
comes out to meet you, eye to 
eye!" she stated. 

She uses her poetry to 
address the truths of life, ugly 
or pretty, but always the truth. 

Gwendolyn Brooks was 
bom in Topeka, KS., but has 
lived all of her life in Chicago, 
IL., where she was a graduate 
of Wilson Junior College.

Legacy Of An Adopted Child 
Once there were two women 

Who never knen' eachother 
One you do not remember 

The other you call mother. 
Two different lives 

Shaped to make yours one. 
One became your guiding star 

The other became your sun. 
The first gave you life 

And the second taught you to 
live in it 
The first gave you a need for love 

And the second was there to 
give it. 
One gave you a nationality 

The other gave you a name 
One gave you the seed of talent 

The other gave you an aim. 
One gave you emotions 

The other calmed your fears 
One saw your first sweet smile 

The other dried your tears. 
One gave you up-It was all that 
she could do. 
The other prayed for a child. 

And God led her straight to you. 
And now you ask me 

Through your tears. 
The age-old questions 

Through the years: 
Heredity or environment- 
Which are you the product of? 
Neither, my darling-neither 
Just two different kinds of love.

"You don't have to be crazy!" 

Peg VanHorn- Voice Writer 

A pillowed rocking chair, a braided throw 
rug, a shawl tossed across a chair, lamp light and 
mugs of hot tea, this is the atmosphere in room 202 
Montgomery, comfortable, relaxing, private. 

Counselor, Kay King invites students and 
faculty to visit ... relax ... talk. "You don't have to 
be crazy to seek counseling," urges Kay. 

Who should make an appointment? 

* Anyone who is experiencing a family 
crisis, relationship problems, is depressed, has an 
eating disorder 

* Students juggling home, multiple roles 
and school 

* Returning adults adjusting to college life 

* Psychology students wanting career ad- 

* Anyone wanting self help books for their 
personal use or class assignments 

* Faculty who want feedback about han- 
dling student situations 

* Anyone who just wants to talk 

Kay can offer crisis counseling or help with 
decision making and problem solving. Whether 
the situation is more serious like depression, or just 
making education plans that coincide with one's 
personal life, Kay is available. Kay's goal is to 
reach as many people as possible. 

Besides individual counseling, a support 
Group meets every Monday, 3:30-5:00pmin room 
207 Montgomery Hall. Anyone interested in join- 
ing may call Kay. The support group is a place to 
try new ways of coping, a practical place to learn 
techniques that will help with behaviors the rest of 
your life. (Kay hopes to develop a support group 
around the nursing schedule as well.) 

Kay 's personal goal is to be more authentic 
and honest with herself and others. ' 'It seems today 
that people are confused about themselves, looking 
outside themselves for answers and they lose sight 
of their own abilities to look inward." says Kay. 

She is troubled by the exploitation of pri- 
vacy in the lives of individuals portrayed by the 
media, particularly television talk shows and the 
news. "There must be a greater respect for pri- 

vacy; we have gone too far. "stresses Kay. Dignity 
is lost through this exploitation. Where is one's 

Dignity, pride, privacy and authenticity are 
important to Kay. Kay and her husband, Mike, 
have been married 25 years. They live on a farm 
near Emlenton with their two sons, Irah, 16 and 
Abby, 1 3 and a goat, chickens and turkeys. Kay 
loves to play tennis, plant flowers, collect antiques 
and cook ethnic foods. 

Kay earned a bachelor's degree in psychol- 
ogy from Grove City as a traditional student. 
Fifteen years later, she returned as a nontraditional 
student to earn her master's degree in social work 
from the University of Pittsburgh. In May 1994 
Kay graduated from a three year post graduate 
program in Gestalt Methods from the prestigious 
Gestalt Institute of Cleveland. "I will be a student 
forever," say's Kay, "This keeps my work interest- 
ing and personally keeps me challenged with a 
growing edge." Before coming to Clarion, Kay ran 
an infant center for pregnant teens, was an admin- 
istrator at a child abuse council, worked at Family 
Services in Oil City as a therapist, was a consultant 
and ran workshops. 

Kay King — comfortable, private, honest 
and authentic; you have to be crazy to pass up an 
opportunity to visit with Kay! 

Kay is at Venango on Monday, Tuesday and 
Thursday. Call 676-6591 ext. 277 for an appoint- 
ment, or stop by room — Montgomery.

LETTER: Editor 

There is a lot of controversy on this 
campus about smokers being banned from Rhoades 
Lounge. I am a smoker myself. 1 realize that 
smoking is not good for me and it is even worse for 
those who breathe my second-hand smoke. 

According to the "Tobacco Use Policy" of 
Clarion University, dated February 23, 1989, "the 
long term goal regarding tobacco products is to 
make Clarion University a totally smoke free cam- 
pus by the year 2000, and to do this primarily 
through educational efforts and through providing 
support for persons who request assistance in aban- 
doning the use of tobacco products." 

Lung Cancer is the number one killer of 
men and women today followed by emphysema 
and heart disease. We know we should quit yet we 
still smoke. I have tried to quit several times but he 
habit keeps drawing me back. I signed up for a 
support group on this campus in 1 992 and never 
heard anything else about it. 

To ban smoking in certain areas will not 
stop us from smoking. Most of us will become 
more stubborn about our habit because we feel our 
rights and needs are being infringed upon. We 
understand the needs and rights of nonsmokers and 
we would like ours understood also. 

This new policy has given some of us 
reason to pause and rethink our position as smok- 
ers. Some ofus do want to quit. Along with making 
the buildings smoke free, why not strive to move 
the students, faculty, and staff to become smoke 
free. After all, it is the people, smokers and non- 
smokers, that make this campus v/hat it i.^.

Mid-Term Time Is Here — 

Is It Time For School Adjustments? 

By Carol Boyle 
Voice Writer 

By now, students are begin- 
ning to adjust to campus life. 
Also, many are feeling as if they 
need a better game plan. 

Whether or not you have 
settled on the right major for you, 
or you are just taking a myriad of 
general courses you know wi 1 1 be 
required in all majors, it is time to 
sit back and assess your life as a 
college student. 

The following are some of the 
social and personal things 
you may be dealing with: 

Perhaps you are sharing an 
apartment, have a roommate, are 
becoming involved with activi- 
ties, or becoming acquainted with 
a new peer group. 

You are, for the first time, 
managing a budget, coping with 
loneliness (close friends take time 
to develop), or making decisions 
or solving problems. 

Managing classes , activities 
and a job can be tough. 

Learning to be assertive is 
important, as is learning to set the 
goals you want and need. 

Academically, as students, 
you have found you now have 
more demanding class work, and 
that there are greater differences 
in class size. 

You are attending daily lec- 
tures and taking more notes than 
you have ever taken in your life. 
Good writing skills and 
meeting deadlines for papers are 
paramount in your life now. 

You are, quite probably, tak- 
ing tests that require problem 
solving, and that may be a whole 
new way of thinking to you. 

Completing long reading 
assignments and making sure you 
understand the material that is 
most important to you. 

Be sure you take part in 
class discussions, even if it is 
difficult for you to speak up. Once 
you have started to answer in 
class, you will find that it gets 

Be prepared for each class, 
each day, utilizing good study 

Finally, remember that Ve- 
nango Campus has a good staff of 
tutors available to help you 

through the difficult spots. 

College life is not always 
easy. It takes time to adjust. 

But, those who put forth 
honest effort wall find it very 


By: Lee Masters Voice Writer 

With stress of job, home- 
work, housework, and family re- 
sponsibilities, we could all use 
more hours in the day. 

Some professors may not 
agree, but students feel we should 
take a break! Put those school 
books in the back room, hide the 
dirty clothes in the closet, shut 
your eyes as you walk past those 
dishes in the sink, and head out 
the door. 

Take a walk and look at the 
leaves or head down by the river. 
Go to the local diner and treat 
your self to pie ala mode and a 
cup of tea. 

Relax and dream of a vaca- 
tion or winning the lottery and 
how you'll spend the money. 

You'll be refreshed and 
ready to conquer anything. 

Halloween Dance 

The Campus Activities 
Board announces the annual Hal- 
loween dance at Rhoades Center, 
8:00 pm, Thursday. Music will 
be provided by the DJ "Posey", 
until the witching hour. Prizes 
will be awarded for best costume 
and other categories. Refresh- 
ments will be served. 

Are To Speak About 
Middle East Peace 

Rev. Thomas Are, author of 
the book "Israeli Peace/Palestin- 
ian Justice", will be a guest 
speaker on that topic at Clarion 
University of PA on October 26 
at 3:30 pm in Rm 250-252 of the 
Gemmell Student Complex. The 
presentation is free and open to 
the public. 

In the past five years. Are 
developed a passion for peace 
and justice, especially in the 
Middle East. He believes the 
main issue facing the world to- 
day is global economic injustice 
along with wars, hunger and ecol- 

In 1992 he served as a mis- 
sionary to the West Bank and the 
Gaza Strip. "The most challeng- 
ing ecclesiastical influence has 
been my relationship with Naim 
Ateek, Canon of the Episcopal 
Church of Jerusalem, and Marc 
Ellis, Orthodox Jew of 
MaryknoU, NY, who have made 
me aware of the great injustices 
to the little people of the Middle 
East," says Are.

Clarion To Observe 
Famous Supreme 
Court Decision 

On May 16, 1954, a little 
over 40 years ago, the United 
States Supreme Court ruled 
that, separate but equal schools 
were unconstitutional, in the 
landmark BrowTi Vs. Board of 
Education case. 

Clarion University will 
observe this famous decision, 
through guest speaker Cheryl 
Brown Henderson, at 7:30 pm 
today in Hart Chapel. 

Ms. Henderson is one of the 
three daughters of the late Rev. 
Oliver L. Brown. In the fall of 
1951, Brown, along with 12 
other families, led by attorneys 
for the NAACP, filed suit in 
behalf of their children, against 
the local board of education in 
Topeka, KS. At that time. Rev. 
Brown's daughters and the 
other children, because their 
skin was black, had to travel 
across town to go to school 
rather than attend the elemen- 
tary school four blocks away. 

Three years later a unani- 
mous court decision stated that 
separate but equal schools were 

Mrs. Henderson has been an 
educator for 20 years. She is 
currently a state educational 

Clarion University Martin 
Luther King Jr. committee is 
sponsoring this event which is 
free and open to the public. 

Student Senate Report 

Did you know this campus 
is like a stamp on a letter? Ve- 
nango Campus consists of 67 
acres. We students owti this land 
by proxy, if you will. LAND- 
HOLDERS, lets pose a question. 
What shall we do with our new 
found holdings? Shall we build 
condos for people or bats? Should 
we bulldoze and cement it over? 
Maybe we create trails among 
the trees where fiirry forest crit- 
ters live. 

We want your ideas. Drop 
off your suggestions to any sena- 
tor or at Rhoades Center.

Learn How To Learn 

What kind of learner am I and why 
should that make any difference? 
That's what I wanted to know so I 
stopped in at the learning skills cen- 
ter and asked Darlene Hartman. 
Darlene says there are three basic 
types of learner; kinesthetic, audi- 
tory, and visual. Kinesthetic is hands 
on learning, such as lab work, real 
world approaches to problem solv- 
ing and so forth. Students who get 
more out of reading a text or using 
groups are most likely visual learn- 
ers. Those who prefer lectures or 
learn best in discussions tend to be 
auditory leamers. According to 
Darlene, you don't have to be a 
genius to get good grades in college. 
What you need to do is find out what 
kind of learner you are and adapt 
yourself to it. Since each text and 
professor is different, you should 
know how to adapt your learning 
strategies for each class. Students 
who want to become efficient learn- 
ers should contact Darlene in Rm 
208, Montgomery Hall, Ext. 283, 
for an appointment.

The Turtles Vacation 

By Lee Masters 

Imagine you've lived in the 
woods for 25 years. You know 
where all the good food and drink- 
ing water is. When the weather 
changes, there is no fear, you're 
right at horrc. 

All your bird friends call 
good morning to you and the 
squirrels and chipmunks skitter 
round your path with a wave of 
their tail. 

One day you wander close 
to that hard black area that use to 
be a field, full of good food and 
home of many friends. All gone 
now. You still shake your head 
after these 10 long years, and 
wonder why. 

Suddenly, you're picked off 
the ground and hauled into one of 
those moving boxes filled with 
the human smell. They are so 
loud and touchy. They keep try- 
ing to make you eat crackers and 
cheese curls and chocolate cov- 
ered raisins when you really want 
and need grasshoppers, plants, 
worms, wild fruits and some clean 
cool water. There is no fresh air, 
no friends. You want to go home. 

I read an article in our local 
paper recently about a turtle that 
took a 1,000 mile frip from PA 
and back. This is how I figured 
he felt. First he loses a small field 
to pavement and then loses his 

Let's all leave the turtle to 
his natural habitat before he ap-

Give Yourself A Star 

Go ahead, give yourself a star. Every 
class, before you close your book, try to 
remember 5 important things that you've 
just covered. This will start the long term 
memoiy process by clearing your working 
memory. You will then be able to go to your 
next class ready and able to leam. When you 
get home, try to remember those five points 
again. This will bring those facts out of 
short term storage to working memory, where 
you can begin to place them in long-term 
storage through mnemonics, recitation or 
other memory techniques.

Promise yourself to be so strong that 
nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To 
talk health, happiness and prosperity to 
every person you meet. To make all your 
friends feel that there is something in them. 
To look at the sunny side of everything and 
make your optimism come true. To think 
only of the best, to work only for the best, 
and expect only the best. To be just as 
enthusiastic about the success of others as 
you are about your own. To forget the 
mistakes of the past and press on to the 
greater achievements of the fiiture. To wear 
a cheerful countenance at all times and give 
every living creature you meet a smile. To 
give so much time to the improvement of 
yourself that you have no time to criticize 
others. To be too large for worry, too noble 
for anger, too strong for fear and too happy 
to permit the presence of trouble.

The Oil City Review: Directions 
Darlene Hartman, The Voice 

"Holben, if your I.Q. was three point lower, you'd be 

The loud, strident voice said these words to me every 
day in Economics class. Sometimes a large index finger 
with a cracked and yellowed nail would wag in my face 
in rhythm to the daily cadence. 

Every day I would become more and more distanced 
from the room, the class, the subject, the teacher, the 
words. I was retreating into a fantasy land where numbers 
and GNPs, graphs, tables and pain couldn't go. 
I retreated to a\oid the words. 

One day I escaped so far and so well that I missed the 
dismissal bell. 1 didn't see the rest of the class leave. I just 
sat there with my head turned toward the windows. 
I awoke when the finger poked my shoulder 
as the voice shrieked my name. 

From that day on my desk was pushed against the 
teacher's desk. 

My vantage point gave me new material to escape on as 
the litany began. I could see globules of spit as they 
danced on. A watery tliread next to his tonsils then 
gathered in a little ft^oth at the hinge of his lips. 

Lower than grass, 

lower than grass. 

the words would 
echo and I would glide off to a meadow filled with 
flowers and sunshine and cool May breezes. I'd watch a 
ladybug chase aphids up a daisy stalk. I'd hear the heavy 
drone of a buiiiblebee as it searched for nectar in a head 
of clover. Id see the plant bend as the insect sucked its 
life again, 
"Are you getting this, Holben?" 

Why should I? Who cared? I didn't want the class, I had 
no choice. I was trapped and I wasn't "getting it." How 
did this happen'' Who's to blame? 

Shut up voice so I can think! 

Lower than grass, lower than grass, 
my mind is the 
sickles edge and niy silent words are 
mowing )'ou 

Your venom has no effect on me as I bundle you into a 
sheaf My movements are graceni! as I run the pitchfork 
in and carry the p.le to be burned. No winnowing for you, 
your spiteful, lienieaning words must end. The fire 
consunes i; all tht; chf.ff, the seed, the stalk. 

The ashes are stomped beneath my feet. 
See, you v/anttd to break me with your words, but it's you 
who pays the ^js.'. 

The finger is bacic. As it points at me, the voice is 
growing loud. The class is laughing and starting to go, 
but 1 am told to stay. 

I'm lazy, I'm rude aiid duii-witted, and slow. "This has 
gone far enougn. its neariiig the end of the year. Has 
everything rur. in and out o/your ears? Don't give me that 

Then, you're through!" 

I fled fi-om his den and his peacocky swagger to the 
safety of poems and music and books. But, 
my mind was EXPLODING with anger and STRESS. 
How dare he, the creep! Last chance and I was through, 
ha! Who did he think he was, God? He probably pictured 
himself as Saint Peter with heavenly knowledge of 
"when I must go." 

What a crock. Just because I found him and the whole 
subject boring, he thought I was dumb. Because I was not 
in the least impressed by "His Coachship," my mental 
abilities substandard. Phooey! 

Wouldn't he just die if he knew how many poems were 
given birth in his class. I had tons of adventures while he 
yammered on and on and on. He'd never know how vast 
were my thoughts. My words were fluent and expressive 
and cahn. They teased me into simlit places where he 
could never go. 

Lower than grass. Lower than grass, what a fool he is! 
Under the grass is the earth 
sustaining, enriching, upholding, alive. 

Loamy, soft, rich black soil where my roots sink deep. 
Try to pull me out finger and you'll see it's no easy task. 

The voice is diminished as he goes back the aisle. 

It's safe for a moment. 

Oh, please soon be over. I want to leave. This is all a 
terrible mistake. I want Spanish. I want more words. 
She said, "You can't take any more languages. You must 
have a balanced schedule," 
I begged and I pleaded but budge she would not. 
"Try economics since you already have a math. It will 
tie-in nicely and prepare you for college." 

I didn't want to go to college. I wanted to fly. There 
were places I had to see and things I had to do. 
Lower than grass, lower than grass, 
"You aren't working up to your potential." 

I'd heard these words for years. They had no more 
effect on me. My mind was numbing to the voice. The 
finger lost its jab. My potential loomed before me tall, 
straight, brushing the clouds. 

Its slick sides glinted in the light. Powerful swells of 
hannonies rang from within. Billows of glowing amber 
mist swirled around the bottom. 

It was glorious and grand and very, very unattainable. 
I searched in vain for an opening and tried to scale the 
sides. I pawed and dug and jumped and failed. 
I couldn't reach my potential. I thought, how sad, but 
wasn't sad. My potential was gorgeous to see. It was 
iridescent and shimmery in real live 3-D. I felt comfort in 
knowing it was there if I ever needed it. I knew it would 
The finger poked. 

The voice bellowed. 

I smiled. 
I knew my I.Q. I had my potential. 

The words couldn't kill me.

Most of the 55 people in attendance were 
experienced adults with questions about financing, 
scheduling, and day care. 

The excitement was felt and motivation never 
left the room. One gentleman spoke out from the 
audience and said, "You,ve kept me motivated for 
three hours without having a cigarette, and I'll be 
coming back." 

Applications were filled out and the fees paid 
on the spot by three people. The phone hasn't quit 
ringing, with people from the series wanting to

Finals Scheduled 
Form Study Groups Now

weeks away. Studies show 
that students who join and 
participate in study groups, 
get assistance from the 
Learning Center, and seek 
tutoring, tend to score higher 
on finals than other students. 

Have You Heard The 
Monday Memos Lately? 

I haven't. 

What are the Monday 

For those of you who are 
not aware of the memos, they 
are a weekly printed collection 
of pertinent information from 
the administration offices, 
faculty, and clubs, to the 
students and faculty. 

I realize that not all of the 
information contained, on the 
memo, is for students. How- 
ever, there is a great amount of 
information contained therein 
that is vital, timely and infor- 
mative for the general student. 
Request each of your profes- 
sors to take two minutes of 
class time to read the weekly 
memo, or pass it around class 
for you to glance at, it's your 
right, and sometimes your

Why Are Memos 
Important To Read? 
Because Posters 
Aren't Always Effective 

As discussed in Dr. Carie 
Fordens's Psychology class, 
most posters on the walls are 
similar in size, shape and color, 
making the menagerie of 
posters displayed on campus 
less effective. 

(A suggestion from the writer) 
Clubs and organizations should 
consider trying a new concept. 
Possibly, one color for each 
specific club, etc?

The Oil City Review Volume 2 

Into The Light 

Pretty Woman. By: Christine Hunt 

They could see her shapely figure. 

They watched her lovely face, 

whistled at her hips 

that swayed with sensual grace. 

When she crossed the churning water 
on that long narrow walk, 
the men returned to working, 
and resumed their ribald talk. 

In the crisp, blue autumn sky 
The sun cast a brilliant glow 
Upon the trembling water below. 

Each time a fresh face did appear 
the men would pause at last, 
and not resume their work again 
until the vision passed. 

They could see her shapely figure. 
They watched her lovely face, 
whistled at her hips 
that swayed with a sensual grace. 

They started in to whistle, 
as though it were a game. 
Above the clamor and the din, 
The water called her name. 

She could not hear them whistle, 
nor shout at her in vain. 
They could see her shapely figiu^e 
But they could not see her pain. 

Silence echoed all around, 
when she balanced on the rail. 

Fragile arms stretched out, 
to catch the wind and sail. 

Stunned, they stood in disbelief 
and watched the horrific show, 
as the churning, vicious water 
pulled her down below. 

In the crisp, blue autumn sky 
The sun cast a brilliant glow 
Upon the trembling rusty bridge 
And the laughing water below.

Jazz guitarists, Bill and Jeanette Ruber, 

performed, par-execellence, at the Bridge Coffee 
House Saturday evening. 

The couple performed in, what can only be 
named the "Huber" style, that area guitar 
enthuiasts recognize and love. 

A standing room only crow^d attended 
Saturday's event. 

Judy Rock of Summerville presented a 
number of her poems. The words reached you 
with meaning. 

Ms. Rock spoke with life when she intro- 
duced her works. As she continued her reading, 
her voice became more antimated, and her 
poetry became more alive. 

Kay Fineran-Luthin of Clarion was the 
second poet on the evening's program. 

She presented her works in a friendly, famil- 
iar way, and spoke of things to which we all can 

She spoke of sepia tinted photos of those 
long gone, of the advent of Locust in a young 
life, and of her family and 1 7 sets of twins. 

Her poetry was fresh and alive. 

Concluding the evening was a vocal presen- 
tation of Irish and Scottish folk songs presented 
by John Hogle. 

Hogle delighted the audience with his talent. 
He presented wonderful old tales of common 
country life using the fife and drum as his only 

His closing rendition of "Danny Boy," sung 
accapella, left the audience nearly in tears. 

A great evening, all told. 
December 10 is the next Bridge Coffeehouse 
in Franklin. 

A Little About Rich 

And A Lot About Diversity 

By: Peg VanHom Voice Writer 

Rich Snow, head librarian at the campus 
library, had a little to say about himself during 
our interview the other day, but had a LOT to 
say about his work on the Venango Campus 
Diversity Committee. 

Here's a little about Rich! 

Rich has a bachelor of arts degree in French 
from Kent State University, and a masters of 
library science degree from Florida State Uni- 
versity. After graduation. Rich worked at South 
Carolina Converse College. His wife, Betty, 
was his next door neighbor in South Carolina; 
she is a Spanish teacher at Cranberry High 
School. Rich says he is addicted to his computer 
and works on it nonstop when he is at home. 

Here's a LOT about Rich's work with the 
Venango Campus Diversity Committee! 

Committee members. Rich, Dr. Carie 
Forden, Dr. Phil Terman, and Kay King, coun- 
selor are working to increase awareness and 
appreciation of diversity on campus. They are 
responsible for the Suhr Hall exhibits featuring 
the 1 994 Chinese New Year, the Holocaust and 
the Native American displays. This committee 
made arrangements for the diversity workshop 
and the Washington Sisters' performance held 
on campus in September. 

The committee's next display will focus on 
Kwanza, an African American group formed in 
the 1960's to celebrate the culture and cooking 
of Africa. The committee is working with the 
CUP Diversity Committee and International 
Students Organization to foster interaction 
between campuses. (The CUP International 
Students will attend this year's ALO Thanksgiv- 
ing dinner at Rhoades.) 

One way each of us can become more 
aware of the customs and beliefs of other cul- 
tures and to appreciate diversity, is to read about 
it. Here is a list of the new titles available at the 
campus library: 


All The Tea in China 

Between Heaven And Earth: A C niiHe to Chinese 

Core of Chinese Classical Fiction 
Fun With Chinese Festivals 
Joy Luck Club 
Life And Death in Shanghai 
Love Must Not be Forgotten 
Mooncakes And Hungry Ghosts 
Two Years in The Melting Pot 
Atlas of The Holocaust 
Jewish Folktales 

The Diary of Anne Frank 
In Kindling Flames 
Jewish Folktales 
Jewish Book of Why 
Schindler's List 
The War Against The Jews 
NATIVE AMERICANS (These books will not be 
available until the display is dismantled.) 
Blood of The Land 
Crown of Columbus 
Fictional Paths to Understanding 
Give Back 

Growing up Native American 
Harper's Anthology of 20th Century Native 
American Poetry 
The Indian Way 
Iroquois Stories 
Lakota Women 

Lost Tribes And Promised Lands 
Story Earth 

Ways of Indian Wisdom 

KWANZA (These books will not be available until 
after displayed.) 
Autobiography of Malcohn X 
Black Women's Health Book 
Crossing The Danger Water 
Kwanza: A Celebration of Culture & Cooking 
Masterpieces of African American Literature 
Race Matters 
Sister Outsider 
Song of Solomon 
Struggle is My Life 
Talking Back. Thinking Femmist. Thinking Black 

Rich may have little to say about himself, but 
what he says about his interest in diversity sure tells 
us a lot about him! (The Diversity Committee still 
has an opening for a student member. Please see one 
of the committee members if you are interested.)

May 1 8 has been set as an 
open day with the following 
suggestions made for your 

Shopping at over 10 km of

Consider a trip to the top of the 
CN Tower, visit the downtown 
Parliament Buildings, the 
Canadian Exhibition Place, 
City Hall, the Allan Botanical 
Gardens and much, much more. 
Concluding the trip will be a 
stop at Niagara Falls with three 
hours to tour the area.

Who's "Tommy," "Miss 
Saigon," and a medieval dinner

Smoking Issue 
Still Unresolved 

Following A November 15 meeting with 
Clarion president, Diane Reinhard, the study 
moves forward concerning the smoking issue. 

Dr. Reinhard indicated to Venango student 
senate members that she was unaware no smok- 
ing signs had been placed around Venango 

Gayle Downey and Chris Gaisford informed 
Reinhard that the issue is controversial and many 
students have indicated that a smoking area 
available on Campus is greatly needed. 

The senate has invited Dr. Grunenwald to 
hold an open forum on the subject, but he has 
asked that students stop in his office to discuss 
the matter. 

The ventilation expert who was to come to 
Campus, still has not arrived, the women told 

Further investigation is going forward into 
selecting a smoking area on the campus. 

Letters to the editors of the Voice are still 
being accepted on this subject. Anyone wishing 
to express an opinion is welcome to send them to 
the Voice mailbox in Frame Hall. 

Parking Issue 
Still Priority 

Among the issues discussed recently by 
Student senate members with Dr. Reinhard, was 
the parking situation on Venango Campus. 

Parking spaces are often at a premium on 
good days, Gayle Downey and Chris Gaisford 
told Dr. Reinhard. When the snow flys, the 
piles of snow flakes can take up as many as ten 
spaces, the women explained. 

To deal with the current problem, and to 
discuss the possibility of adding more lots to the 
Campus, Jay Blondheim was appointed to the 
Main Campus parking committee. 
Lost & Found Items 

The Frame Offlce requests students check 
for their personal belongings in lost and 
found before the semester is over.

good with writing and with people: what could 
be better than that. If you're still not sure, stop 
at the Write-Inn, 1 05 Frame and ask the current

Grenci's Locker 

Even before he became the 
oldest heavy weight champion in 
history, Goerge Forman was a 
hero of mine, and probably my 
favorite personality. I have fol- 
lowed his career since the '70's, 
and there are many things about 
him that intrigue me. 

To begin with, when he was 
the heavyweight champion in the 
'70's, he was not a very likeable 
guy, and admitted that he would 
not have been averse to literally 

killing his opponent, (cont.) 

(Grenci cont) 

after loosing his crown to 
Muhammad AH, his career was 
never the same. After a loss to 
Jimmy Youngin 1977heclaimed 
to have had a religious experi- 
ence and retired. 

He stated that he "died" in his 
training room after the fight and, 
"the smell of death was around 
for weeks." But then he was 
reborn, he became a preacher. 

Ten years later he returned to 
the ring. Not many people took 
him seriously. He fought coura- 
geously against Evander 
Hollyfield about three years ago 
for the championship but lost. 
Just about everybody firgured it 
was his "last Hurrah." 

Before fighting Michael 
Moorer I told people he had a 
good chance of beating 
him. . .most figured he didn't have 
much of a chance. One astute 
boxing fan said it was hard for 
him to see Forman winning be- 
cause aging fighters before him 
had tried and failed. 

When Joe Louis was in his late 
thirties he fought Rocky 
Marciano, and looked like a shell 
of his former self. Ditto for 
Muhammad Ali when he fought 
Larry Holmes in '80. But to me 
there was always something dif- 
ferent about Foreman. 

He had fought a few times 
within the last few years, and 
although he did not win all of 
them, he didn't embarrass him-

What Employer's Look For. 
A review by Bill Gaisford 

Do you have what it takes to get a job in 
today's job market? You might be surprised by 
some of the things prospective employers look for. 

A panel of three recent Venango Campus 
graduates shared their job hunting experiences 
with students attending the luncheon-lecture in 
Rhoades Hall. All three speakers stressed the 
importance of becoming involved in community 
and campus activities as well as planning now for 
marketable job qualities. 

Kris Gaisford, a '94 graduate with an Associ- 
ate degree in nursing, is currently working as an 
R.N. in the Critical Care Unit of Metro Health 
Center in Erie. She said "Employers want to see 
commitment and involvement." 

George Ekis agreed with Gaisford, saying that 
' 'getting involved in outside activities shows your 
willingness to participate and learn." Ekis is also 
a '94 graduate with an Associate degree in Nursing 
and an Associate degree in Business management. 

According to Ekis, if an employer is choosing 
between two applicants, the one that can list extra- 
curricular activities is more likely to be hired. 
"When they say 'Tell me about yourself, you 
have to have something to tell." 

When asked which classes he felt were most 
beneficial in getting a job, Ekis stated ' ' Speech and 
Math. Nobody likes every class, but these are 

Pat Zook also felt that Speech was one of her 
most important classes. Zook, who graduated 
recently with an Associate degree in Business 
Management and a Bachelors in Industrial rela- 
tions, felt that being able to speak and articulate 
ideas is key to "selling" yourself to an employer. 

Zook said the skills she uses most are commu- 
nication and computer. "This is a computer age 
and employers want to know what kind of com- 
puter experience you have. You should keep a list 
of the types of computers and the programs that you 
are familiar with." Don't go to an interview 

"The diversity of your resume is important to 
getting hired." Zook said. "If your focus is too 
narrow, it can work against you. Employers are 
looking for flexible people with a broad range of 
interests and educational experience. Don't take 
too many classes in the same area." 

Zook added that education is an ongoing 
experience. "A degree is not a ticket to a job, it is 
the foundation for what you will learn on the job. ' ' 

The consensus of the speakers was that 1 ) A 
4.0 QP A is not as important as a list of extracurricu- 
lar activities. 2) Take a wide variety of courses. 3) 
Get letters of recommendation from department 
heads before you graduate.

Frank Clark 

A Homage In Prose 

By Stevette Wood 

I spoke with him for a minute today. This 
special person, educator and advisor, will be 
leaving our institution soon. The home of the 
eagle is permanent for none of us. Frank is the 
epitome of Clarion University. A handsome, 
silver haired man, polished and learned. He 
offered refinement to each of us, never wanting 
to mutate us into a specific mold. I watched each 
of us in Speech class, his students, develop 
under his care. The timid and insecure devel- 
oped the articulate ability to verbally shine in 
front of others without stuttering, turning hues 
of red or vibrating the podium they held in front 
of them as they spoke. Others were like me, bold 
and not fainthearted over the thought of public 
speaking, yet no longer satisfied with mediocre, 
we strove for perfection and accuracy under his 
lessons. "Slow down your speech, Stevette, ar- 
ticulate." I feel it a very fortuitous experience to 
have been in his nest. We said goodbye as the red 
maple leaves clustered and blew away like geese 
flying south.

Paralegal, Nursing- 
Listed As 
"Hot Careers" 

Degrees for four of the top ten national 

"hot careers" are available at Clarion University, 
and two of them are available exclusively at 
Venango Campus. Information concerning 250 
occupations is published in the "Occupational 
Outlook Handbook," and according to the office 
at Clarion, it provides information necessary for 
careers such as papalegals (86 percent national 
growth rate), special education teachers (74 
percent), psychologists (48 percent), and regis- 
tered nurses (42 percent). 

The paralegal program is five years into its 
existence. The student earns an associate of 
science degree in legal business and studies. 

This prepares a student for assisting lawyers 
and their clients in law offices, in courts or in 
governmental institutions. In addition, when 
authorized to do so by administrative, statutory 
or court authority, a graduate may operate as an 
independent contractor. 

A legal assistant is capable of representing 
clients at many administrative hearings. 

Clarion University offers degrees in several 
types of nursing, including preparation to take 
the registered licensing examination. According 
to Dr. Audean Duespohl, dean of the school of 
nursing, "Our enrollment is exceptional." 

In addition to the bachelor of science degree 
in nursing, RN program, the school also offers 
an associate of science in nursing (ASN) and a 
bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degrees. 

The hot careers list also rates physical thera- 
pists, at number two, with an 88 percent pro- 
jected growth, and veterinary-care technician, at 
number 10, with a 38 percent projected growth. 
Although these degrees are not currently avail- 
able at Clarion, the fields can be entered 
through the biology degree program.

What is Your Best 
Way To Learn? 

Everyone learns in their own way. Some 
learn best by hearing things. Others need to 
"See" things drawn out for them. 

Many students learn best by doing; 
rewriting notes, doing labs, typing study guides, 
etc. Actually, we all learn in each of these ways. 

But, what is the dominate way in which we 
best learn? 

Your job, as a student, is to learn which way 
you can learn material best, then maximize on 
that strength. (cont.)

What can you do 
to resolve conflicts? 

• start talking! If there is a wall of silence between 
two people in a conflict, nothing can be resolved. 

• Take it outside. Sometimes its much easier to 
discuss things if you aren't in the office. Pull the 
other person out to the hall, take him or her to 
coffee, anything. It can be very helpful to have a 
change of scene. 

• Acknowledge the other side's point of view. 
Don't sell anybody short by not listening. 

• Be willing to compromise with the other person. 
After all, the conflict is probably doing damage to 
the entire office staff. ■

Who's Who.... 

By Peg VanHom, Voice Writer 

Dean DuespohUAn Inspiration 

Dr. T. Audean Duespohl 

In 1972, the first class of asso- 
ciate degree nurses graduated 
from Venango Campus of Clarion 
State College. At that time, Ve- 
nango was the only branch cam- 
pus of a state college to offer a 
two year degree program. 

Dr. T. Audean Duespohl was 
one of the instructors of the class 
of 1 972 and helped to develop the 
initial nursing curriculum. To- 
day, Dr. Duespohl is Dean of the 
School of Nursing. 

Dr. Duespohl started her nurs- 
ing career as a diploma graduate 
of the Oil City School of Nurs- 
ing, which was associated with 
the former Oil City Hospital. 

After working for one year, 
she went to college, earning a 
baccalaureate degree in nursing 
from the Un i versity of Pittsburgh , 
Titusville. She taught nursing 
for four years at Hamot in Erie, 
while earning a masters, in guid- 
ance and counseling, from 
Edinboro University. 

In 1970, Duespohl was in- 
vited to Venango Campus to teach 
those first associate degree nurses. 
While working full time in Oil 
City, she commuted to the Uni- 
versity of Buffalo to earn a mas- 
ters degree in nursing ,with a 
major in child health. 

In 1972, Dr. Duespohl was 
elected to the department chair. 
She was appointed director of the 
Division of Nursing in 1982, and 
then Dean of the School of Nurs- 
ing in 1986. 

Duespohl earned her doctor- 
ate degree at the University of 
Pittsburgh in 1989. (Atthistime, 
Dr. Duespohl was living in 
Pittsbrugh and commuting daily 
to Oil City and Clarion.) 

Duespohl is the author of three 
books. Nursing In Tran-sition, 
Nursing Diagnosis and A Guide 
For Effective Clinical Instruc- 
tion. She has a private practice as 
a psychosocial therapist for chil- 
dren and adults working with 

Partners in Care, Pam Lawrence 
and Associates. 

By offering an associates de- 
gree in nursing at a branch cam- 
pus. Clarion was a pioneer in 
Pennsylvania during the 70's. 

Today, Dr. Duespohol is lead-

site. Approximately 150 bacca- 
laureate nursing students and 150 
general education students, at the 
West Penn Hospital School of 
Nursing ,are earning Clarion cred- 

While the Pittsburgh stu- 
dents earn Clarion credits from 
afar, Clarion University is add- 
ing yet another new dimension- 
distance learning technology. 

The infamous information 
highway will connect our cam- 
pus to the Clarion campus via 

Video computers and the tele- 
phone system will enable stu- 
dents in Oil City and students in 
Clarion to attend the same class 
without leaving their respective 

An experimental session of 
this technology is scheduled for 
mid -February, when Deans 
Duespohl and Grunenwald will 
"attend" a meeting of deans at the 
main campus, while remaining at 

Dr. Duespohl and her hus- 
band, Terry, now live in the Oil 
City area. Mr. Duespohl is a 
business instructor at Clarion, 
main campus, and he teaches Ap- 
plications of Supervision at Ve- 
nango Campus on Wednesday 

They have a foster daughter 
from Turkey, who lived with them 
as an AFS student for one year, 
then returned later to stay. Fulay 

is near completion of her masters 
degree in business management 
and accounting at Indiana Uni- 

Dr. Duespohl can be consid- 
ered a pioneer of sorts in another 
area as well. She and her hus- 
band are starting a llama farm. 
The first llamas will arrive in 

According to Dr. Duespohl, 
llamas make excellent pets and 
are the pack animals of choice, 
because their hooves do not de- 
stroy the environment. "These 
gentle animals are being used as 
golf course caddies and are ap- 
proved as 4-H pets," says Dr. 

In closing. Dr. Duespohl re- 
flects, "nursing is a versatile pro- 
fession." As a nurse, educator, 
administrator, author, wife, fos- 
ter mother, and soon to be llama 
farmer, versatile is a good de- 
scription for Dr. Duespohl, too!

The Cook-In/Games Night 
held in Rhoades last Friday was a 
success. Sandy was chief flipper 
at the grill while others watched 
through the glass in anticipation. 

Inside, the gym was open 
and being used by children and 
adults alike. There were table 
games, pool, ping-pong,dancing 
to MTV and a boom-box and a 
game of tag. 

Coming March 31, our

We quietly made requests for

Unfortunately, they have disap- 
peared again.

(Editor's Note: This poem was one written by 
Mary Swander, nationally acclaimed poet and au- 
thor, who read her work Saturday evening, at the 
Bridge Coffeehouse in Franklin.) 

The Day you have to stay on the other side 
of the fence, teat and milk still in sight, 
brimful, hanging from the belly of your nanny. 
How lovely her blue fur, brown eyes, ears stiff 
and white, flicking flies. 
How perfect the curl of her tail, the sharp 
tips of her horns, the split of her hooves. 
How you can still feel your head butting 
her bag to start the flow, then how 
everything moves, tongue pressed against skin, 
mouth tilting up and up again. The day began 
the same with sun and corn, the rooster's crow, 
a quick leap from the woodpile, but one look 
into that water pail was enough, your own face 
blurring. This is it, kid, your grown, 
teeth too big for baby stuff. So quit your 
moans and peek through the slats 
at the wild grape just a neck stretch within 
What you don't know, what you don't know.

??????? !#X!#X! The Write Inn 

By Peg VanHorn 
Voice Writer 

Do you groan when your in- 
structor says, "Write a two page 
paper on....?" Do your ideas seem 
to vanish when you stare at that 
blank white paper? 

The Write-Inn in Room 105 
Frame Hall, is the place for you. 

This peer tutoring program is 
manned by fellow students who 
enjoy writing. 

One of the Write-Inn tutors, 
Dave Burnett, started creating 
short stories before he could 
write; he dictated his tales to his 
older sister. 

As a sophomore, majoring in 
anthropology, Dave plans to earn 
his PH.D in archeology and to 
continue to write. Eventually, he 
would like to support himself 
with his writing. 

Dave is an editor for the Oil 
City Review, has read some of 
his work at the Bridge Coffee- 
house, and has sold one of his 
short stories. 

Dave credits the peer tutor- 
ing technique, in Dr. Phil 
Terman's creative writing class 
last term, with helping him to see 

things in the mechanics of his 
writing that he had not seen be- 

After that class, he could see 
a big change in his writing. 

Dave tutors 10 hours a week, 
at the Write-Inn, as a work study 
student. His hours are: Tuesday, 
2:30pm-4:30pm, Wednesday, 
10:00am-l:30 pm, and Thurs- 
day, 12:00-4:30pm. 

Another Write-Inn tutor, 
Lee Masters, says, "When I grow 
up, I would like to write and 
illustrate children's books." 

Her interest in writing grew 
to include children's tales, when 
she created oral stories for her 
daughter, Hannah, when they 
lived in a tipi 

(Lee hauled water from a 
nearby stream, grew and canned 
her own vegetables, made 
Hannah's baby food and cooked 
over a wood burner. Lee says 
that nothing wakes you up on a 
cold winter morning like a bucket 
shower down by the river. 

Lee has two poems published 
and is co-editor of the Venango 
Voice. She is in her second year 
of college and plans to earn a 

bachelor's degree and become a 

Lee, her boyfriend and 

Hannah nowlive near Franklin in 
an underground home. There is 
a garden on the roof, and Lee says 
that it is really strange to be sit- 
ting in the living room when 
someone is mowing the grass. 

Lee is a Write-Inn tutor for 
credit. Her hours are 1 1 :00 am to 
1:00 pm, Tuesdays. 

Pam Evans discovered that 
writing for Dr. Terman's US lit- 
erature class, last semester, 
complemented her nursing 
classes. In addition to her nurs- 
ing journal, Pam keeps a writing 
journal and a personal journal. 

After graduation in "94" 
days, Pam plans to earn both a 
bachelor's and master's degree in 
nursing and would eventually 1 ike 
to teach. 

Pam is working at the Write- 
Inn for credit. Her hours are 
1 1 :00 am to 1 :00 pm Mondays. 

Whether its the mechanics 
of writing, storytelling, 
joumaling, or putting those first 
words on that blank page, the 
Write-Inn is a good place to start.

A Note From An Editor 
By Lee Masters 

I do not like to take advantage 
of my access to this paper, by 
putting my two cents in all the 
time, and I don't. 

Today, however, I feel like 
spewing forth a word or two. It 
may be PMS or the full moon or 
the fact that I am on the front 
page of the paper. 

It has come to my attention 
that a new math course is going to 
be offered in the fall of 1995, at 
Clarion, called Math 010. It will 
cover basic elementary math 
skills of addition, subtraction, 
multiphcation, division and hope- 
ful ly other math facts. 

Lets figure here. Iflwereto 
start my college education again 
in 1995, I would have to take 
Math 1 0, 1 00, and 1 1 before I 
could take the math I am re- 
quired, (Math 131 any body?), 
put up the bucks for three courses 
and probably an extra semester 
or two, all to go over what was 
taught in high school. 

1 took the math placement 
test. What a joke. 95% of the 
students taking the test looked at 
the test and left. I answered a few 
problems but ended up in Math 
100. There I spent a semester 
reviewing all of high school alge- 
bra, little of which was on the 
placement test. Now I'm taking 
Math 110. Oh boy! Now I get to 
review Math 100. I sure hate 
spending all this money for 


I don't want these classes for 
my electives and I don't want to 
graduate with 200 credits in 5 
years, in debt with student loans, 
because 1 had to take all this math 
when I just wanted Math 131. 

I didn't need a math prerequi- 
site for my accounting classes. 
That made no sense. We use 
formulas and the old add and 
subtract technique continually. 

I can understand why an ex- 
tensive mathematics background 
should be required for virtually 
all bachelor degrees, but the as- 
sociate degree math requirement 
of Math 131, arguably, appears 
overly demanding. 

Now I'm running out of steam 
and paper, with still a lot on my 
mind. One of which is editing 
this story of content and gram- 
mar. I should have gone to the 
Write Inn.

Psychic Helps 
Audience See 

The telephone rings. You 
know who is calling without pick- 
ing up the receiver. Or, you sense 
without answering that the news 
will be bad. Coincidences... or 
psychic ability? 

Kasandra, a psychic 
who spoke to a group of about 80 
people at Rhoades Center in Feb- 
ruary, suggests that each of us 
has psychic ability, but not all of 
us are tuned into it. She recom- 
mends that we think of our psy- 
chic ability as we would a muscle. 
If we use our muscles, we de- 
velop them. If we don't use 
them, the muscles remain under- 
developed. We could have latent 
psychic ability, just waiting to be 

According to Kasandra, 
there is scientific evidence for 
psychic activity. It has been dis- 
covered that brain waves have a 
certain number of measurable 
cycles per second. During the 
beta cycle, for example, one ex- 
periences approximately 14-30 
brain waves per second. This is 
the normal waking consciousness, 
the logical state. The brain is 
working too fast to have psychic 

During the alpha brain 
wave cycle, when one is engag- 
ing in an activity that does not 
require a lot of logical thought, 
like driving the car or washing 
the dishes, one' s brain cycle mea- 
sures from 7-13 waves per sec- 
ond. As the mind slows down, 
one can experience psychic oc- 

currences. Have you ever no- 
ticed that when you take a walk or 
drive the car you seem to be able 
to sort out a problem better than 
when you give it your undivided 
attention? You could be perceiv- 
ing better because you are think- 
ing during your alpha wave cycle. 

According to Kasandra, 
children up to the age of 13 are 
particularly psychic. They are in 
their alpha brain wave cycle all 
the time. People with excep- 
tional talent in art, music, writ- 
ing, and other creative activities, 
are often predominantly focused 
in their alpha cycle, as well. 

The theta brain cycle 
measures 3-6 waves per second. 
This is when one is getting into 
the sleep cycle. A lot of people 
are psychic in their dream state. 
Have you ever dreamt something 
and then it happened? If your 
dream is going to come true, it 
will mostlikelyoccur within three 
days reports Kasandra. 

To demonstrate how 
each of us has some psychic po- 
tential, the seminar participants 
were divided into groups often. 
Each member of the group took a 
turn holding a sealed envelop 
that contained a hidden object. 
Each member then described the 
feeling perceived when the ob- 
ject was held between the palms 
of the hands. This is called psy- 
chometry - sensing the energy of 
the owner of the object. A mem- 
ber of one group said, "All I 
could think about was my daugh- 
ter. ' ' The object in the envelope 
was a piece of jewelry belonging 
to Kim Price — the woman's 

(Continued Pg. 4) 

(Psychic continued) 

Kasandra displayed her psychic ability by 
reading tarot cards. A woman in the audience 
randomly selected a card from the deck. Kasandra 
reported that the chosen card had only one meaning 
-something to do with moving. Yes, the woman 
who pulled that card is moving! Coincidence or 
psychic ability? 

Kasandra suggests that we begin to trust our 
gut instinct, follow our intuition and our hunches. 
In otherwords, pay attention to our psychic ability. 
"How do we know what the potential of being 
human really is?" summarized Kasandra.

Let's Speak Correctly In Class 

As Joan Rivers would say, "Can we talk?" We

very well we don't have proper speaking grammar.

get a better job. What are our chances of landing 
that perfect dream job, that pays the comfortable 
bucks, if we don't know how to communicate 

We have our English classes for our vmtten 
grammar. Do we talk like we write? Should our 
teachers correct our speech, in class? 

I am not opposed to being corrected in class. 
I am here to learn. 

"Where is that assignment at, Mr Smith?" I 
asked. "Where is that assignment, period, is the 
proper way to ask that question Lee, and the 
answer is, page 79." 

We are adult enough to learn from our mis- 
takes if they are pointed out to us in an adult way.

Writing Centers 
Conference Attended 

"What's the most important thing you learned?" 
I asked Dr. Joan Huber, who traveled to 
Bloomington, Indiana to give a presentation at the 
East Central Writing Centers Association, March 
10. "That we're not the only ones," she answered. 
"When I'd just mention people coming in at the last 
minute with papers, people just rolled their eyes. 
Yet a lot of the tutors told about helping students 
with several papers, so SOME students evidently 
do come in plenty of time." 

What is the value of going to a conference like 
this? "Mostly it's to get a fresh viewpoint, new 
ideas. The conference includes schools in Michi- 
gan, Indiana, and Ohio, as well as Pennsylvania. 
Tutors, as well as directors and faculty, make 
presentations and sit around and talk. And being on 
the Board, 1 have some voice in policy, so it's well 
worth the trip." 

Dr. Huber said that 180 people attended the 
conference at Indiana University and that she's 
looking forward to the 1996 meeting, planned for 

24th Annual James Scott II 
Essay Contest 

College level students are invited to submit 
essay entries on the subject "Would a Right to 
Work Law in Pennsylvania Enhance Business and 
Individual Opportunity." 

This contest is sponsored by the Pennsylvania 
Right To Work Defense and Education Founda- 
tion, Inc. This year's essay topic asks students to 
examine the economic differences that exist be- 
tween states with a Right to Work law and states 
without such a law and to determine the effects 
such a law might have on enhancing business and 
individual opportunity in Pennsylvania. 

All entries must be postmarked by Friday, 
April 28, 1995 and mailed to: Essay Contest, PA 
Right to Work Foundation, 225 State Street, Suite 
300, Harrisburg, PA 17101. 

As college students, looking to enter the work 
force in PA or another state, the research required 
for this essay could benefit a person two fold. 

Contest rules and instructions are available in 
the office of Angel Muschweck, Montgomery Hall.

More About Math 

by Bill Gaisford 

I've been hearing a lot about a 
new math class lately so I de- 
cided to ask math instmctor, John 
Grenci, what the fuss was all 

According to Grenci, Clarion 
will offer a Math 1 course that 
will focus on basic arithmetic 
(such as addition, subtraction, 
multiplication and division), frac- 
tions, possibly some algebra, 
how to read a story problem and 
how to take notes. The course 
will be offered on main campus 
only and will not be required. 

The math placement test may 
put you in Math 1 0, however the 
placement tests are not binding. 

"For a returning adult student 
whose algebra skills have gone 
unused for years, anxiety can be 
areal killer. Ifyou feel you didn't 
do well on the placement test 
because of test anxiety or some 
other reason, but are capable of 
doing the work in Math 1 1 0, you 
can skip Math 100. Some people 
end up in the Math 100 course 
when they should be in 1 10." 

Grenci also stated that while 
some people might find Math 
010 helpful, the vast majority of 
his students won't need it. "It 
(algebra) might be hard for many 
students, but the ones who really 
want to, will get through. Atti- 
tude is the key." 

If you're having trouble in 
math, John suggests that you see 
him in his office, see a tutor or get 
together witha group of students 
from your class. Don't wait intil 
you fall behind to ask for help.

It's Spring! 

"Secret Garden" 

Dance Time 

Venango Campus slates Spring Dinner Dance. 
Shake the winkles out of those party dresses and 
suit jackets. Its almost time. 

Time to relax from the hectic school routine, 
socialize and dance through the night in a "Secret 
Garden" atmosphere. 

C.A.B. will be sponsoring the annual Spring 
dinner dance at the Franklin Club on Friday, April 
28, beginning with a 6:30 PM social hour. 

The dinner hour will be from 7:30 till 9:00, 
when the dancing begins. Music will be provided 
by the group, Mercedez. They claim, "We'll drive 
you to dance" from 9:00 PM till 1 :00 AM. 

Schedule those babysitters right now, polish 
those wing-tips and dust off those patent leather 
dance shoes. The cost for students and their guest 
is $7 each; for faculty and staff and their guest, the 
cost is $ 1 1 . Maybe we can afford some new shoes. 

It's just about time, to take time, to smell the 
flowers. Think Spring. 

Letter to Editor: 

There is an English Proverb by John Ray 
that says, "He is a fool and ever shall, that 
writes his name upon a wall." I am a fool. I 
contributed my junk mail to the biology trash 
project. My signed garbage was blowing up 
against the doors to the Suhr Library build- 
ing; it was tumbling down the hill toward the 

I hear that someone was going to call the 
police and have me cited for littering. I wish 
you had. 1 should be held accountable for my 

I hear that the trash in our center court 
disturbed a lot of people. It should have. It 
disturbed a lot of critters, too, and the grass, 
and the shrubs and the pond. Who will 
complain for them? 

It's too bad that all our trash is not signed; 
maybe there would be less of it. Maybe we 
would all feel accountable - or at least foolish.

will be much celebration and recognition of 
this day, through April 28.)

Letter From Editor: To All Clubs 

Elections for our Student 
Senate, for the 1995/96 school 
term will be held April 24 through 
the April 27. 

There's been a lot of cover- 
age of the candidates for our local 
elections and I'm excited about 
that interest. 

I would like to see the same 
amount of candidates for our sen- 
ate as there are for commissioner. 
(Well maybe not quite as many) 

We need to be active in all 
our governments or we lose the 
democracy for which we fought 
so hard. 

Applications for Student 
Senate are in Rhoades or Stu- 
dent Services. 

It could be fun and educa- 
tional, with lots of speeches, ac- 
tive campaigning, maybe even a 
debate. If you need to know more 
about the Senate, talk to one of 
the Senate Members. 

Student Senate would like 
to announce that club budgets 
have been completed. Letters 
will be sent to organizations to 
inform them of the appropria- 
tions made and the dates for 
which any decision may be ap- 

Senate would like to have 
given each organization the en- 
tire amount they asked for, 
however, found this to be im- 
possible. Many organizations 
asked for increases while at the 
same time the overall budget 
appropriated to Senate will re- 
main the same for the 95/96 
school year. Senate worked 
hard at giving each organiza- 
tion a fair slice of the pie. 

Any club wishing to ask 
questions regarding the bud- 
get appropriations may do so 
at the time of the appeals hear-

American Red Cross 

Bloodmobile Slated 
at Rhoades Gym 

Time -11AM -5PM 
Date -April 11th 
Place - Rhoades Gym 

The American Red Cross, 
in conjunction with the Student 
Nursing Association, invites. stu- 
dents to an April 1 1 blood drive 
to be held at Rhoades Gym from 
1 1 am until 5 pm. 

A recent survey showed 
college students shocked to learn 
that fewer than five percent of the 
population donate blood. Most 
respondents to the American Red 
Cross-sponsored survey thought 
between 20 and 30 percent of the 
population donate blood. 

The survey results under- 
score the need to intensify efforts 
to let people know how urgently 
blood is needed, not just at short- 
age times, but throughout the year, 
said Beverly H Lake, executive 
director of the Red Cross' Al- 
legheny Region Chapter. 

"Most people tell us they 
would give blood if they knew 
there was a need. The need is 
definitely there," continued Lake. 
In fact, almost half of the blood 
donated in the US is collected by 
the American Red Cross as part 
of the Red Cross commitment to 
immediate action emergencies. 
That's because, for the people 
who need life-saving blood, 

The Red Cross assures that 
it is easy to be a blood donor. 
Donors must meet three basic 
standards: be at least 1 7 years of 
age; weigh at least 1 1 pounds; 
be in good health. 

The truth of the matter is 
that blood can come only from 
people who care enough to give, 
people who appreciate the fragile 
gift that we all have been blessed 
with— life. When we give blood, 
we give life to another, we offer 
a miracle. Giving blood is one of 
the simplest humanitarian acts 
you can perform, yet it is one 
whose benefit is felt for a life- 
time, for there is no human need 
more basic than good health. 

So please sign up today 
through any SNA member, or at 
the sign-up table in Rhoades Cen- 
ter to give the gift of life. 

Earn Language/ 
Credits in Costa Rica 

Clarion University is offering 
Spanish courses in Costa Rica. 

The program is being coordi- 
nated through theUniversityofCosta 
Rica, firom June 5 - July 7. 

"Students will] ive with a Costa 
Rican family while participating in 
intensive elementary Spanish classes 
and special cultural activities," says 
Dr. Vincent Spina. "It is an excel- 
lent opportunity for student to de- 
velop critical, long range language 
and multi-cultural skills that will 
definitely be advantageous to gradu- 
ates in any major." 

Deadline for registration is 
April 30. Call 226-2290,96 or 91. 


Employment Day 
Held In Rhoades 

A large crowd attended the career fair held in 
Rhoades recently. Local business representatives 
set up information booths and talked with many 
students about prospective careers and education 
requirements for those jobs. Mock interviews were 
also held for those who wanted to get a feel for the 
interviewing process. The program offered stu- 
dents a chance to assess the job market and evaluate 
their educational goals. 

Locally, job prospects are limited but they 
do exist. A few Nursing positions are still avail- 
able, but the current trends in health care are 
forcing cutbacks in many hospitals. Home health 
care is one field that is growing out of those cuts. 
As the length of hospital stays become shorter, the 
need for home health care professionals will in- 

The Visiting Nurses Association expects to 
hire additional Nurses to fill the higher demand. 
Applicants should have one to two years of medi- 
cal-surgical experience. As well as field and staff 
nurses, the VNA also employs bookkeepers, com- 
puter specialists, purchasing agents, secretaries, 
and speech therapists. 

The Presbyterian Home of Oil City offers 
positions in dietary, laundry, house keeping, sup- 
port services, social services, activities, and nurs- 
ing. Presbyterian employs LPN ' s, RN ' s, and Nurse 
Aides. Many Venango Campus students earn 
valuable experience working part-time as nurse 
aides before graduation. 

Both the VNA and Presbyterian Home 
encourage volunteers. There is always a great need 
for volunteers and hiring preference is given. It's 
a great way to get your foot in the door. 

Another career field that shows some prom- 
ise is the Para legal. Para legals can be employed 
by insurance companies, banks, law offices, or be 

self-employed. Self-employed para legals should 
consider administrative law as a specialty. Para 
legals can represent clients in insurance, veterans 
benefits, social security, workman's comp claims, 
etc. but cannot represent clients in a court of law. 
Those considering a career as a para legal should 
have good reading and writing skills. 

Good writing skills are also necessary if 
you want a job at Venango Newspapers. Reporters 
need typing skills and should have a Journalism/ 
Communications degree. Reporters are not the 
only people employed by newspapers. The circu- 
lation department handles money and marketing 
while advertising deals with businesses and the 
community. Venango Newspapers often hire 
Clarion students to work as interns, gaining valu- 
able job experience. 

Internships are a great way to get summer 
employment in a chosen career field. A good place 
to look for an internship might be this school or an 
employment office such as Kelly Temporary Ser- 
vices. Kelly will assess your skills and match you 
with any available jobs in the area. Kelly will also 
assist you in finding out of towoi or international 
jobs. Although these are temporary positions, they 
can lead to full time if the opening becomes perma- 

The Pennsylvania Job Services office is 
often overlooked as a way to find internships, 
summerjobs, and professional civil servicejobs. A 
state wide listing of positions available, can be 
found in one of the many printout lists or the regular 
publications from PA Job Services.

Benedum Center Presents 
Angels in America 

Dr Martha Ritter and Dr Phil Terman are

issues portrayed in the play. These sessions are 
April 25, 27, and May 2 from 4:00pm till 5:30pm.

are filled. A University van will transport you to the 
6 hour/2 part presentation. Millennium Approaches 
shows at 2:00 and Perestwika begins at 8:00. 

Angels in America, Parts One and Two, was 
commissioned by the Eureka Theatre Company 
through a special projects grant from the National 
Endowment of the Arts. The plays have been seen 
in San Francisco and at the Mark Taper Forum in 
Los Angeles. Part One: Millennium Approaches 
ran for a year in London at the National Theatre and 
was joined on Broadway in the fall of 1 993 by Part 
Two: Perestroika.

Melvin Coe does his share 

"It Stinks!" "What a mess!" "It's gross!" 

"Are we going to school in a dump?" 

' 'They must be crazy! ' ' 

"They better pick it up!" 

These and other comments were heard re- 
cently when Dr. Martha Ritter's biology students 
took the garbage they accumulated in one day and 
arranged it around campus as an Earth Day lesson. 
Why did students litter campus to celebrate 
Earth Day? Here are some of their responses: 

"The purpose of this garbage assignment was 
to get our attention and other's attention ..." 

"... Perhaps this project will make people 
more conscious of their behavior in the future." 

' 'This project was to make people realize that 
yes, one person can make a difference." 

"... We, as the human race, can't let this 
(garbage pileup) continue. It will become bigger 
than all of us." 

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Earth 
Day in the United States. This grass roots effort 
was started by professors and students who made 
speeches and marched on Washington, D.C. in 

The group called attention to critical environ- 
mental issues such as the greenhouse effect, the 
depletion of the ozone, acid rain, tainted beaches, 
and the mountains of solid waste. 

As a result of this first Earth Day, the 
Environmental Protection Agency and the Clean 
Water Acts were signed. (Good Housekeeping 
Magazine, April 1990) 

Will the impact of looking at a littered campus 
for a few days change the way students look at their 
garbage habits? Or, will our garbage "become 
bigger than all of us?" The choice is ours.

tem, along with empowerment 
strategies, from the perspective 
of a client advocate. 

Janet Foner is a community 
organizer and trainer of people 
with psychiatric labels and their 
allies. She has a Masters degree 
in community psychology and 
has been a leader in Pennsylvania 
mental health initiatives. She is 
uniquely qualified to lead this

This workshop explores 
how you are affected by the men-

be a discussion of the myths and 
facts of mental health and mental 
illness. We will examine the 
controversies that surround the 
use of drugs and electric shock

Take Back The Night 

Family Services and 
Children's Aid Society Rape Cri- 
sis/Domestic Violence Center is 
once again sponsoring a Take 
Back The Night March and 
Rally on Thursday April 20, be- 
ginning at 6:30 PM. 

We will meet in the parking 
lot of Family Services located at 
716 East Second St. in Oil City 
and proceed to Justice Park; once 
at the park there will be several 
speakers who will address issues 
and concerns associated with 
sexual assault. 

April is Sexual Assault 
Awareness Month and is recog- 
nized as such across the country. 
The theme in Pennsylvania this 
year is "No Means No". This 
theme emphasizes that anyone 
has the right to say "no" to sex, to 
decline sexual intercourse and 
have that "no" be respected. 

According to the Pennsyl- 
vania Coalition Against Rape 
(PCAR), sexual assault centers 
across the Commonwealth served 
34,007 people affected by sexual 
violence in 1993/94. Of this fig- 
ure more than 8,000 were child 
victims of sexual assault. Na- 
tional statistics reveal that a 
woman is raped every minute in 
the United States. 

Sexual violence affects ev- 
eryone in our community - either 
as a survivor, a family member, a 
friend or co-worker. 

Please join us on Thursday, 
April 20 and help us send the 
message that NO Really Does 
Mean NO!

Buck-A Rub 
Sparks Comment 

"It's better to light one candle 
than to curse the darkness" fueled 
the Christopher Mo vement that turns 
50 this year. Most of us take the 
proverb to mean that it's better to 
showcase something good than to 
complain about what's lacking. So... 

Unheralded, the Psychology 
Club had a first-rate flindraising 
when it sponsored "Buck-A-Rub" 
with timed backrubs @ $ 1 .00 each. 
Ecologically, it cost the environ- 
ment nothing; it probably earned 
the Club something and it inspired 
this letter. 

Now, if groups did rent-a-per- 
son, I could sure use the help and 
my conscience would be a lot clearer 
about donating. We probably have 
lots of typist, home sewers, explain- 
ers-of-Lotus, tidy-uppers... you 
name it. Service profits go direct to 
the group, and the only environ- 
mental impact would be a list of 
services and suggested donations, 
on recycled paper. 

Saving the environment, the 
Girl Scouts in Wilkinsburg (Pitts- 
burgh) made and sold their own 
dried-bean soup mixes, a product 
kind to consumer diets and tooth 
enamel. Packing the mixes in simple 
baggies kept trash to a minimum. 

It would be great if groups 
would use personal service or hand 
packed local products for fund-rais- 
ing. People working together would 
also increase cooperation: it's hard 
to see "tree people" or "rednecks" 
when you're working together. May 
be we can light some more candles 
here at Venango Campus.

I would like to take this 
opportunity to thank every- 
one for the honor bestowed 
on me in the dedication of

feels.... being rewarded for 
doing a job I love.

Beauty is in the eye of the be-

texture of our own back yard."

Volume 22 No. ] 

I August 28, 1995 

Clarion University of PA 


When I was growing up, 
"the dogged days of summer" 
only seemed to happen the first 
week of August and referred to 
the relentless heat and humidity. 
This summer seems to have been 
full of dogged days. 

Now classes begin and we're 
excited and frustrated, still wish- 
ing we were fishing instead of 
working like a dog at home and 

I hope the Venango Voice 
can help make your days a little 
easier with a little humor when 
you are down, information when 
you are lost, and a friend if you 

What does dogged mean? I 
went first to Roget's Thesaurus 
and found synonyms: stubborn, 
obstinate, tenacious, unyielding, 
resolute, persistent, determined, 
persevering, steadfast, rigid, in- 
flexible, plodding, dogmatic, 
mulish. I thought these were 
great words to focus on this se- 
mester as we work towards our 
goals as opposed to the ant- 
onyms: undecided, weak, feeble. 

We all survived the dogged 
days of summer. Let's put forth 
a dogged outlook at school and 
at home, to make everything 
work positively for us. 


Stop by the Venango Voice, 
Room 205 Montgomery Hall. 
Bring us a story to print, an idea 
to work into a story, any sugges- 
tions as to what could enhance 
the paper. Remember, the Ve- 
nango Voice is your voice.

The New Kid In Town 

There are many new faces 
this semester, bright and eager, 
but none so excited as the new 
kid on Campus, Dr. Arthur J. 
Acton, our new dean. 

We must take this moment 
to recognize, with distinction, 
some of Dr. Acton's many 

He has his AB in History 
from The College of Wooster 
and his MA and Ph.D., also in 
History, from The University of 

Dr. Acton went from In- 
structor to Professor; from Assis- 
tant to the Dean to Dean of Ve- 
nango Campus. 

His contributions to the col- 
leges and universities he has 
been affiliated are endless. 

He's shared his knowledge 
through workshops, publications 
and papers, which focus on the 
freshman and sophmores in col- 

Dr. Art Acton says he is 
"delighted to be here." Venango 
Campus is about the same size as 
other colleges he has worked for. 
Another common feature is the 
health related programs we offer. 

Dr. Acton and his wife, Mary 
Ann, an attorney, live in North 
Hills with their two youngest 
children, Kate 4 years and Annie 
6 years. Their oldest daughter, 
Audrey, lives and works in Tai- 

Dr. Acton knows how the re- 
turning adult may have felt last 
week when the kids went off to 
school. His daughter Annie 
started her first day of school 
while he was here in Oil City. 

When still in high school ,Art 
Acton was interested in the space 
program. He remembers making 
a rocket for a science project 
when Sputnik was an infant. He 
thought maybe he'd be an aero- 
nautics engineer. He found he 
was more interested in history 
than math. 

His outside interests are play- 
ing the classical guitar and act- 
ing, for which there is not enough 
time to do anymore. He some- 
times can sneak in reading a mys- 
tery novel to relax. 

When asked what his fondest 
memory is, he answered without 
hesitation, "My first date with 
my wife." 

Introduce yourself when you 
see Dr. Acton on campus. He is 
receptive to new ideas and one of 
his priority lies in the services to 
the student and to assure a quality 
education for us all.

Why Do I Run? 

by John Grenci 

I run for several reasons. I 
also swim and bike. First of all, 
running keeps me in shape. Be- 
ing in shape allows me to feel 
better about myself and have more 
energy to do what I want to do. It 
create a positive cycle! 

Some people believe that 
running will make you more tired 
to do things. I think the opposite 
is true. Did you ever take a nap in 
the middle of the day? In most 
cases, it really makes you more 

I also run because it gives 
me time to myself; to think, which 
is something I love to do (as some 
of you may notice by my all too 
frequent faraway look I have on 
campus). You can learn by any 
context, and I have learned by 
thinking while I am running. I 
will sometimes rehash a conver- 
sation with somebody I have pre- 
viously talked to. 

Emerson once said, "Every 
man is my superior in that I may 
learn from him." Do I always 
heed somebody's advice? Of 
course not. But I will from time 
to time. 


I may be getting off of the 
subject a little, but while we are 
speaking of learning about 
people, there are some who day I 
need to talk more. This may 
sound cynical, but a lot of people 
these days do not converse; they 
just take turns talking. If you 
want to talk to me on the possible 
reasons that David Crosby over- 
came drug addiction and others 
have not, I'll talk as long as you 

Perhaps I've strayed from 
the original intent of the article. 
Sometimes, I can't help myself. 

By the way walking is great 
also. However, I enjoy running 
lOK races and triathlons. It is 
hard to get in sufficient shape for 
these races by just walking. 

I Double 
Dare You 

I want to throw a challenge 
to all students, faculty and staff. 
Submit an article, joke (print- 
able), recipe, poem, words of 
wisdom, your philosophy of life 
(in less than a zillion words if 
possible), anything youmay want 
to write about, to the Venango 

If you are shy and don't want 
to use your name, use an alias 

Everyone has some worth 
while words or an anecdote to 
make us laugh. It can be truth or 

I challenge you to submit an 
article, big or small, to the Ve- 
nango Voice. 

I double dog dare you. 

Principle Or Principal 

The other day when I went 
into Dr. Acton's office to inter- 
view him for the Venango Voice, 
I had a flashback of being called 
into the Principal's office in 
highschool for "smoking in the 
boy's room", I mean girls room. 

I got to thinking. Which 
principle/principal is it? 

Synonyms of Principle: 
origin, source, belief or set of 
beliefs, system, opinion, teach- 

Synonyms for Principal: 
chief, prime, main, essential, 
superior, unrivaled, controlling. 

I found out which principal 
set the principle.

put off purchasing any textbook, 
please do so as soon as possible. 


It's hard to believe, but I've 
been arrested and charged with 
setting Frame Office clock ahead 
one hour. I can't dispute this 
charge and I will be "Doin' Time 
for Healthier Babies" with the 
March of Dimes Jail and Bail. 

I will be locked up on Sept. 
13th at 10:00 am till 6:30 pm. I 
plan to through myself on the 
mercy of the court by raising my 
bail of $200. 

Please help me reach my bail 
and donate to the March of Dimes. 
On behalf of the unborn and new- 
bom babies that will benefit from 
your generosity, THANK YOU!

Is Your Mentor Looking For You? 

The Mentor Program is unique 
to Venango Campus. It is de- 
signed to accl i mate the new Fresh- 
man to the ways and means of our 
campus. Your Mentor has been 
through it and is one of your best 
resources, available for free. 

The students who are your 
Mentors have the same hectic 
class and homework schedule, 
family responsibilities and jobs 
you do. 

The Mentor has the added 
work of getting in touch with 
each of their 12-20 protegees, 
setting up 3 meetings, each se- 
mester, with each protegee, and 
filling out the paper work for the 

These meetings are required 
and reflect in the Mentor evalua- 
tion as well as evaluating as to

Each Mentor is scheduled 
to be at Rhoades Desk or in Mont- 
gomery Hall 5-10 hours a week. 

They spend hours trying to 
telephone and/or track down the 

list of protegees, set up the meet- 
ing time and hope the protegee 
shows up. 

This is not all Freshman stu- 
dents, I can assure you, but 
enough that it is very frustrating 
to the students who are giving 
their time, adding to their daily 
responsibilities, to help you. 

Even if you have no questions 
or concerns at this time, meet 
with your Mentor and help them 
out. I know they will be there 
when you come up against some- 
thing you need help with.

What Is 

by Tim Rodgers 

That question was answered

are incorrect.

Business Club Reviews 
Resume Need 

There was an article in the Derrick, Friday 
September 8, asking for 1000 resumes from the 
region, to be put on a data base. 

The purpose of this action is to have documen- 
tation of the labor pool that is available in this area. 
When a company looks us over as a potential sight 
for their business, there will be evidence of talent 
they could use. 

This is not a job service but a tool to help 
recruit new business to our region. That includes 
Venango, Clarion, Crawford and Forest counties. 

Cindie Litwiler, director of Oil City's Commu- 
nity Development Corp. says, "Companies are 
looking at Pittsburgh and Erie because they assume 
the labor pool is there. But we have no record, no 
way of showing just what talent we have here." 

The Business Club encourages everyone to 
refine that resume and take it to Angel Muschweck 
in Room 206 Montgomery, who will forward them 
to the Community Development Corp. 

Don't forget, the Business Club meets every 
Wednesday at 4:00 in Rhoades. Everyone is wel-

Women Empowering Women 

You Are Not Alone 
by Barbara Koehler 

Look at us, you are not alone. 

We've been battered and broken. 

Yet we look so whole. 

We've watched the drugs and the booze. 

Destroy lives, steal souls. 

We have mending hearts and broken homes. 

Look at us, we've fought for our health 

Against disease and death. 

Partners have left us. 

Empty children just guess. 

As we battle a system 

That says we are less. 

Look at us, you are not alone, 
We're all here together 
Learning to stand on our own. 
Look at us, we need a friend 
As we pick ourselves up 
And start over again. 

Women Empowering Women is a support group that shares ideas, 
teaches effective communication skills, and deals with relationship 
problems in an informal peer setting. We will be meeting in Room 
118 Frame, September 20, 1995 from 9:30 to 11 AM. See you there! 

Many have shown interest in this group, but finding a time 
convenient for all of us has been our main problem. Let us know

The Neighborhood Committee 

The other day, while study- 
ing, I heard voices in the yard and 
then a knock "on my door. I 
opened the door to find a group of 
neighbors, including Bob fi"om 
next door, standing there asking 
to talk to me. I saw no harm in 
that, so I asked Bob in. Bob put 
a handkerchief over his nose and 
his watering eyes scanned the 

"Shh," I said, "We have to 
talk in whispers or we'll start an 
avalanche. You say your from 
what committee? Never heard of 
it. Oh well, come in and sit down. 

You see that mountain of 
dirty dishes? I think that's the 
culprit. But don't talk too loud or 
make any sudden movements, or 
the whole pile will come crash- 
ing down. It's been that way for 
oh, I'd guess about six weeks 
now. I don't remember whose 
turn it is to wash them and it 
really doesn't matter, since at this 
point it's purely as issue of prin- 

You know how it goes. 
Maybe it was my turn to do them, 
(although I don't think it was). 
But even if it was my turn, I think 
that was the night I had to study 

by BiU Gaisford 

for a mid term or something. 

Oh come on now, don't give 
me that look. What's more im- 
portant, a few dishes or my mid 
term? Don't tell me you'd rather 
do dishes that study for a test. 

Well, I guess sometimes it is 
more appealing. But not in this 
case! Just look at that teetering, 
crooked, stack of putrefied plates, 
with silverware still stuck in be- 
tween them. Would you wash 

You know, the archeologist 
in me wants to trace back through 
the weeks of dishes to study the 
diet of this local sub-culture called 
two college students/dysfunc- 
tional family. 

Look here, see this green 
stuff? Spaghetti sauce. Had it for 
breakfast last week. And here, 
right here with the hair growing 
on it, I think that's the spinach I 
fixed for the kids three weeks 
ago. And look way down here 
almost to the bottom. See it? A 
piece of newspaper stuck to the 
syrup on that bowl! I'll bet it has 
a date on it. 

Whadda ya mean it doesn't 
take that long to study for a test? 
What do you know about it? 

When was the last time 
you. ...Shh! They're quivering! 

Who ever is closest to them 
when they fall will have to wash 
them. It's like they're blocked 
ft-om our consciousness some- 
how, and if they tumble down 
they'll be forced to our attention 
and we'll have to deal with them. 
I'm really concerned about 
this but I can't break down and do 
them, that would be a sign of 
weakness. Besides, I really like 
the quiet and best of all, our whole 
family is studying like never be- 

At first, whenever we asked 
one of the kids to wash them, they 
would say, "I can't, I have home- 
work to do." I was a little slow 
catching on and I would think, 
"Isn't that great? Those kids have 
really taken an interest in school!" 
But it didn't take long for me to 
start "studying" after I noticed 
everybody staring at me. So we 
sat for hours on end, our noses 
buried in books. Every once in a 
while you catch someone peek- 
ing over the top of their book, 
waiting for the others to crack. 

I'll bet that you'd suffer 
through a few dirty dishes in or- 
der to have three kids on the 
principals list. I'll bet my wife 
and I both make the dean's list 
this semester. (cont, pg 2) 

(The Neighborhood cont) 

I'm telling you, we're all 
going to be genius' before those 
dishes get done. 

But then again, I really am 
tired of paper plates and micro- 
wave food. And we haven't spo- 
ken to one and other for at least 
five weeks. And the smell!! 
Peeeuuu!! For the sake of sanita- 
tion, I suppose someone should 
wash them. We could have an 
outbreak of cholera or something. 

But then again, maybe not. 
No self respecting germ in its 
right mind would want to live in 
that mess. And besides, if I give 
in this time I will set a precedence 
and forever more be expected to 
wash the dishes when they pile 
up. They'll know that I'm the 
weak one, that I'll wimp out and 
wash them. No sir, I'm not going 
to be the one to give in. 

Well, thanks for being con- 
cerned about us, I hope that an- 
swers your question. And I'm 
really sorry, I didn't think you 
could smell them from outside. 
By the way, I never heard of this 
neighborhood committee before. 
Uh, wait! Please don't slam

Poster Sale BSrcIST"."^. 

The Venango Bookstore 
Poster Sale is through October 
6. Buy one get second at 1/2 
price, buy 2 posters get 1 Free! 
(1/2 price or free poster of equal 
or lesser value.) 

When you're a woman on 
foodstamps and welfare and find 
your self also getting help at Ju- 
bilee Kitchen in Pittsburgh, you 
have no fun money at all. Thus, 
someone's castoffs, oversize cos- 
tume jewelry, sample lipsticks, 
soaps you get in motel rooms — 
almost any little thing— can 
brighten your life. 

If you get your discards to 
me, I'll send them there. 

Once, for instance, I was 
given a pair of overwhelming 
earrings, which went to the 
Kitchen. There my girlfriend, 
they call her "the earring lady", 
gave them to a woman who'd just 
come out of prison. Now THAT 
was making someone's day. 

Remember the Jubilee 
Kitchen when you clear out old 
boxes and cartons. For jewelry, 
the bigger and gaudier, the bet- 
ter. For cosmetics, smaller pre- 
ferred. ^ ^ ,, ^

No, it's not your favorite TV 
show. It's Autumn Leaf Festi- 
val, held annually in Clarion. 

We have Oil Heritage Week 
in Oil City, Applefest in Franklin 
and Clarion has their ALF. 

The week began October 7 
and runs through October 14. 

The streets in Clarion are 
full of crafts, food and shows. Of 
course all the merchants have 
their special sale stuffs. 

This week, Molly 
McFadden and Kori Kellogg, 
our Homecoming representa- 
tives have the honor of joining in 
the activities of ALF, as this is 
Clarion's Homecoming weekend. 

The fun for them will start 
on Thursday, they will be in- 
volved in the activities on Friday, 
and will be in the ALF parade 
Saturday at Noon. 

The Homecoming Queen 
will be crowned during half- 
time at the football game. Clarion 
vs Shippensburg, which begins 
at 2:00 pm 

We should all experience 
ALF once in our life. This year 
we should experience ALF to 
support Molly and Kori. This is 
a great experience for them. 

Case No. 

Let me introduce myself- 
you can call me Case Number 
61004198FU. You've met me 
before, but you've already called 
me by a different name of your 
choosing. Names like: welfare 
bum, lazy, good-for-nothing. 

You stand behind me in gro- 
cery stores, spying overmy shoul- 
der to make sure you tax dollars 
aren't being stolen and abused. 

Since you're a member of 
the working class you seem to 
think that gives you the right to 
dictate my life. You assume that 
since I am on Public Assistance I 
am incapable of making intelli- 
gent decisions concerning my 

That's enough! I've decided 
you need to be enlightened. 

I am not simply a mindless 
case number in the states com- 
puter system. I am first and fore- 
most a mother of two terrific 
sons. Even more so than that I am 
struggling to escape the ever 
crushing dependency of the state 
welfare system by returning to 
college so I can make opportuni- 
ties available in the job market 
that weren't available before. 

(Cont 3rd column) 

What Is Your 
Habitual Ritual? 

There are times that being 
habitual is good and sometimes 
it can be bad. 

Whenever I need to print out 
a page of this paper to proof, I go 
outside and smoke a cigarete 
while it's doing its thing. 

My smoking is habitual and 
not so good. 

Most of my classes are in the 
evening. When I leave class I go 
home and do my homework im- 
mediately while it is still fresh in 
my mind. 

This is a good habitual ritual. 

Synonyms: ingrained, fixed, 
routine, automatic, disciplined 

(Case cont.) 

This is a daily struggle for 
me because I have to juggle my 
children, finances, and educa- 
tion to fit into a tightly calculated 
time frame. I have no time or 
money to experience and "small 
pleasures" of life like the average 
person. I doubt this introduction 
will improve your attitude to- 
wards myself or others like me 
but at least I feel better knowing 
that someday I may be your su-

Pajama Party 

I was getting ready for a 
yard sale this week, cleaning out 
the bathroom closet, wondering 
where all the sheets and blankets 
came from that we never use. 
The worse part of getting ready 
for the sale is figuring a price and 
marking each item. 

Yesterday I saw a poster 
that caught my attention and 
promised to save me alot of work 
and help some one else at the 
same time. 

First American Home Care 
of Seneca is hosting a Pajama 
Party Benefit. The volunteers 
wall be acceptingpajamas, robes, 
blankets, and other bedding 
items for the needy and home 
bound in our area. 

Thursday, Oct 26 -Noon 
till 6:00 PM, take your dona- 
tions to Duawl Prefessional 
Plaza parking lot, across from 
Mongs Fast and Fresh on Route 
257 in Seneca. 

Let your Fall cleaning

help our neighbors.

Dejected due to the awareness of being alone; 
Synonym: Forlorn 

Phillip sat one day after he turned sixteen and 
told himselfhe was lonely. Yes, lonely. Lonely to 
be with only one person for the remainder of his 
life. Lonely to do what he never had a chance for. 
Lonely to know what he liked, what he wanted to 
do, what his favorite color was, and just remember 
his own birthdate. 

He was lonely. His heart was empty. His 
mindnothisown. His soul tumbling in a void. His 
body being used like a hooker. He was constantly 

But Phillip Miles' loneliness was purley men- 
tal. There were women in his life, lots of women, 
though none could keep his interest. Phillip felt 
like an actor, but the only role he was best at was 
being lonely. 

His emotions would peak and falter as if at 
once. Phillip's work was quite suited for his quick 
emotions. He was a salesman. No, not the love 'em 
and leave 'em type. He was the type of salesman 
who sold himself in return for themselves. Not 
mattering if intercourse was part of the transaction. 
Though on occasion of meeting one of his woman 
friends, Phillip was on the carpet before he'd intro- 
duced himself. Apparently, (he came to find later) 
she had been watching porno movies and drinking 
whiskey since she woke. 

For him, the fact was when she opened the 
door and he looked into her eyes, Phillip saw her: 
The mind, soul, and heart. He fell deeply in love 
with this her, then the feeling disappeared. Phillip 
Miles fell in love every hour, ( if averaged on a daily 
bases over a course of a year) or whenever he met 
a girl. 

The women he met were all of different types, 
races, descriptions, and personalities. One he was 
fond of had black hair, blue eyes. She was tanned 
and toned with a sweet disposition and old fash- 
ioned mannerism. The one he least liked was a 
blonde haired, brown eyed, plump girl with the 
personality of a pitbull and the temper of a doberman. 

So, some were jealous of the others, because 
he stayed friends with them all. Sometimes they 
were hard to keep track of. He would forget ones 
birthday or remember anothers on that birthday. 
He surprised even himself keeping up with them 
the way he did. And so Phillip's life went on day 
by day with countless women; Tiresome, but Phillip 
went on. 

He was mentally tired of remembering names, 
addresses, birthdays, favorite colors, and the such 
so many women like men to remember. He was 
physically tired of going from place to place, 
sleepless nights, and endless days. His hear ached 
at being caught up with so many others and himself 
being unimportant. He had no time for himself. 

The feeling of deep, true love was there and 
gone, despite his mother's constant ravings about 
how a deep, true love stays with you till you die. 
They will always be with me, he'd reply to her 
remark. She would only smile and say, "Yes, in 
your heart they stay. Your right.", pat his head, and 
shoo him away. His mother never understood the 
women he met through his entire life- since his age 
of reason- would physically be with him every day. 

Phillip forgot about the playground his mother 
took him to. His ash blonde hair would catch in the 
breeze as he swung high in the air, almost to the bar 
of the swing set. His hands had gripped the chains 
so tight his knuckles would whiten and his eyes 
gleam with joy, while his open mouth caught the 
wind he's made. But he met women at the park and 
no longer went. 

He forgot about the teddy bear he slept with at 
age four, and longed to hold it again. He thought 
he would cry but only remembered on. 

Phillip forgot about the little red fire truck he 
played with as a toddler: The one which he'd push 
a button and make the sirens blare and push to make 
lights twirl. He now pushed a stone on the side- 
walk, recalling his favorite toy and made the fire 
truck noises little boys make. 

Phillip sat on the curb and rain began to pour, 
forming puddles and matting his hair. The rain 
reminded him of the summer he insisted on wear- 
ing his raincoat and goulashes to play outside 
despite the blazing, hot sun. 

(Cont. next page) 


He laughed and got up to jump in the puddles. 
His sneakers filled with water, making squishy 
noises when he walked. He stuffed his hands in his 
jacket pockets and followed the flow of water in the 
gutter. He wanted to be like the flow; Free and 
having a destination. He longed to have a purpose 
and surely it wasn't pleasing all the women or 
selling himself 

Phillip began to hate giving himself to them 
and having them take up all his time. He wanted to 
live and not be lonely, but he looked into her eyes 
through the rain- or tears, he wasn't sure- and fell 
deeply in love with her. The feeling instantly 
disappeared as Phillip. 

Phillip Miles died in the rain from being 

Yes, he was lonely for himself.

The Nature of 

by Lee Masters 

I slam on my brakes every 
time the tiniest of animal, reptile 
amphibian or bird gets on the 
road. Yes even those toads that 
some say look like a leaf or glob 
of tar. You'd think I'd have whip 
lash and would be hanging out 
with Edger Snyder. 

Dave Barry the humorist 
wrote an article, which was re- 
printed in last weeks Clarion Call, 
titled Rodent Revolt. You have to 
get a copy and read it. This article 
brought tears to my eyes. 

Woodchucks holding 
people hostage in a sewage plant 
& squirrels charging children as 
they play, is hard for me to be- 
lieve. I do believe the one about 
the bees attacking a TV reporter 
because of his hair gel. 

The news of all the animals 
lives I have saved by braking, I'm 
sure has spread throughout the 
forest and could only add to their 
goodnature. They are not akin to 
disgruntled postal workers. 

Last week I shared the Ro- 
dent Revolt article with my 1 1 
year old daughter. On our way to 
Scouts we watched a squirrel 
cartwheel & triple flip, king-fu 
style, across a four lane highway, 
only to attack a blue sedan. 

We laughed and cried si- 
multaneously. We weren't sure 
which was appropriate.

An Eccentric 

By Joan R Huber 

Are you unmotivated? Do 
"Success" and "Career" speakers 
leave you cold? Congratulations; 
you're one of the few to recog- 
nize telecultureBS. Think about 
Socrates and Jesus, about Moses, 
about Jimmy Carter. Were they 
successful career people, or did 
they give their best to make a 
better world? There IS a differ- 
ence. Career is about YOU, and 
so is success. Making a better 
world is about other people. 

Does "goal-oriented" also 
leave you cold? Congratulations; 
you're one of those who take time 
to smell the flowers. If you're 
TOO goal-oriented, you miss all 
the goodies when you look some- 
thing up in the dictionary. Gaelic 
stone inscriptions and Druidic 
temples in New England that 
antedate Leif Ericson were iden- 
tified by hobbyists and by a per- 
son more interested in learning 
than in climbing the professional 

Aim for righteousness, for 
helping others.

(Eccentric View from Pg.l) 

Remember, a great book from 
the library is equally available to 
a professor and a burger-flipper. 
But simple folk with sights set on 
a brand-new Olds Gutless Cierra 
'98 and a $350,000 house have no 
time to read because they're al- 
ready owned by their plastic and 
their banks. 

It's your life, your only one; 
live it righteously, YOUR way, 
the INTELLIGENT way, and 
don't buy into slogans and 

Why is 'X' a Kiss? 

Our custom of putting X's 
at the end of letters and notes to 
symbolize kisses grew out of me- 
dieval legal practices. In order 
to indicate good faith and hon- 
esty in those days, the sign of St 
Andrew - a cross- was placed 
after the signature on all impor- 
tant documents. 

Thereafter, contracts and 
agreements were not considered 
binding until each signer added 
St. Andrew's cross after his 
name. Then he was required to 
kiss the document to further 
guarantee faithful performance 
of his obligations. The cross 
was drawn hurriedly, and ofter 
it was tilted and looked much 
like the letter "x".

Sports Predictions 

by John Grenci 

Well, you've got the two best teams in baseball 
meeting in the World Series; the Cleveland Indians 
and the Atlanta Braves. In fact, they are tow of the 
best teams you will find in any given year. Perhaps 
it will be the type of series that will bring some of 
the fans back after last season's debacle. 

The Cleveland Indians won 1 00 games which 
was amazing since only 144 games were played 
this year. They had the best hitting and pitching in 
the American League. The Braves are back in the 
World Series for the 3rd time in 4 completed 
seasons and as usual have what might be the best 
pitching staff in baseball, led by Greg Maddux, 
who is almost certain to win an unprecedented 4th 
straight Cy Young Award. 

The Indians have a better all around team, but 
the Braves have 4 games at home and have been 
there before. I'll pick the Braves in seven. 

There are two fights on November 4th. One 
is the third bout between Evander Holyfield and 
Riddick Bowe. The first two were two of the best 
fights you'll ever see. If the third one is anything 
like the first two, this rivalry might go dowTi as the 
greatest ever (yes, better than Ali-Frazier). 

Riddick Bowe is the complete fighter. He has 
size, quickness, agility, power, and he can take a 
punch. He also has become one of the most 
unlikable people in boxing. He is notorious for late 
hits and during one press conference, actually 
punched his opponent (bare-fisted) in the face. 

Evander Holyfield, on the other hand, is per- 
haps the most likable person in boxing. A soft- 

spoken Christian, he conducts himself in a gentle- 
manly manner in and out of the ring. 

What does this have to do with the fight? 
Everything, because I believe that Riddick Bowe 
will outbox Evander Holyfield but the judges will 
not see it that way. Sometimes judges see it the way 
they want to see it. Holyfield vAW win a split 

The other fight is Mike Tyson and "Buster" 
Mathis. This fight has two things in common with 
the fight between Tyson and "Buster" Douglas. 
One is obvious; Tyson's opponents are both nick- 
named "Buster". The other is that they both had a 
parent die right before the fight. (Douglas' mother 
died a few months before the fight and he dedicated 
the fight to her.) Douglas fought the fight of his life. 
He was a 42- 1 underdog. My heart tells me that the 
same thing could happen again. My head tells me 
something else. I'll have to pick Tyson by a 5th 
round knockout.

Go Directly To Jail... 
Do Not Pass Go... 

by Lora Lamb 

Several staff and administrators helped raise 
money for the March of Dimes drive on Sept. 1 3 by 
'volunteering' in the Jail & Bail. 

Sally Dolan, Darlene Hartman, Cindy Jarzab, 
and Linda Brown were all 'charged', handcuffed, 
and 'sentenced' to 'jail' located at Grandview 
Estates in Oil City. Barb Reagle judged with a firm 
gavel, even fining laughing 'criminals' and not 
stooping to bribery. 

Her Honor, Barb Reagle, said "Participation 
in the Jail & Bail showed the commitment of 
'Venango Campus to the community." 

Have you considered what the March of Dimes 
contributes to the community? 

They educate pregnant women of the impor- 
tance in staying healthy and drug-free. Nationally, 
they contribute the Mom-Mobile used to transport 
pregnant women for prenatal care. 

They have representatives in legislature to see 
the health needs of women and children are met and 
remain neutral to any political issues. 

The March of Dimes has donated grants to the 
Oil City Vo-tech, and Franklin andTitusville Hos- 
pitals for the teens Outreach Program. So, donate 
to the March of Dimes or volunteer your time. 

Linda Brown is not shown.

by Joan Huber 

The initials stand for Frugal, Responsible, 
Unpretentious, Mature Person, an informal group 
begun some time ago that still seems like a good 
idea: no card, no newsletter. And it's environmen- 
tal. Being frugal and mature, for example, I reject 
Maxwell House's single serving coffee bags and 
coupon. All we need is more trash in the environ- 

Rather than trash student's uncollected jour- 
nals, I remove the used portion and offer the rest to 
other unpretentious persons. And rather than buy- 
ing endless sport water bottles, I frugally refill from 
gallon jugs of water. 

An exemplary mature person MADE Barbie 
clothes and houses with her daughter, encouraging 
another generation of frugal responsibility. And 
it's amazing how well you can decorate on FRUMP 
principles while being environmentally respon- 
sible. Any good FRUMP stories out there?

CLEP Test 

Dates Announced 

Are you planning to take a 
CLEP Test this academic year? 
The CLEP Test is a convenient 
way to add credits to your tran- 
script without actually attending 
the class sessions. 

The savings to you are tre- 
mendous, too! You don't pay the 
normal tuition fees for the classes 
you CLEP out of; you don't pour 
dollars into your vehicle's gas 
tank for gasoline to get you to and 
from class; you don ' t spend hours 
of your valuable time attending 
classes and doing homework as- 
signments for a subject in which 
you are already proficient. 

The CLEP Test dates for the 
1995-96 year are as follows: 

Friday, November 1 7 1 995 
9:00 am MH Room 211 

Friday, January 19, 1996 
9:00 am MH Room 211 

Friday, March 15, 1996 
9:00 am MH Room 211 

Friday, May 17, 1996 
9:00 am MH Room 211 

Friday, June 21, 1996 
9:00 am MH Room 211 

Friday, August 16, 1996 
9:00 am MH Room 211 


If CLEP Testing sounds like 
a good idea to you, then visit the 
Career Center in Room 211 of 
Montgomery Hall or call Cindy 
Jarzab at 676-6591 ext. 272, to 
get more information about test- 
ing fees, how to obtain an appli- 
cation form and the complete list 
of CLEP Test options with corre- 
sponding Clarion University 
equivalent courses.

A Big A.L.O. 

A big "thank you" to Dora 
Valencia and Denise Crawford 
for the wonderful ALO Hallow- 
een party. It was a fun time for 
the children because of your time 
and effort. The thirty some days 
of brainstorming, planning, in- 
venting, shopping, drawing, cut- 
ting, hanging, and advertising was 
evident. The shock on your faces 
with the turn out was priceless! 
Paula Vath 
ALO Pres. 

Thanks to all who attended 
the ALO Halloween event to 
make it such a success. All of the 
food you brought was delicious. 
The costumes were great! The 
children were overheated but 
having fun. 

It was crowded, it was 
loud, but it was fun! 

Cash Prize 

You could be a $10 cash 
winner! For the next two weeks 
the ALO will be giving away 
chances to win to those who at- 
tend meetings. Attend the No- 
vember 13 meeting and receive a 
ticket. Attend the November 20 
meeting and get a ticket. At the 
end of the November 20 meeting, 
the drawing will take place.

prize. No catch, just attend two 
meetings. ALO Meeting time is 
Mondays 1 1 :45 at Rhoades! ! ! 

Needed Here 

Do your children get the 
child support they are entitled to? 
If not, they are among the 23 
million kids who are owed $34 
billion in support because fathers 
and mothers refuse to pay. 

What do I do? 

One divorced mother with 
children asked the same thing, 
but didn't stop there. 

In 1984 Gerri Jensen 
founded ACES - Association for 
Children for Enforcement of 
Support - with only 25 mem- 
bers. Now, ACES has 300 chap- 
ters among 47 states and 30,000 
members, of which 87% receive 
support, although ACES doesn't 
guarantee it. ACES has a $20 
membership fee since they don't 
receive government or United 
Way funds. 

I am conducting a survey 
and I need some feedback from 
students at Venango Campus. Be- 
low are three simple questions to 
answer. When done please drop 
the questionnaire into the ballet 
box located on the desk at Rhodes 
Hall. Your cooperation is greatly

The Amish Auction 

by Phil Terman 

We bounce the truck down route 208 through 
Clintonville, past the open windows with the off- 
white curtains drawn. 

Rolling farm land, a light blue late summer 
sky. Buzzing of insects, hummingbirds sweeping 
in and out of the morning glories that climb the 
garden trellises. 

Catching the sign and the arrow, we turn down 
a gravel and dirt road until we come upon a line of 
trucks parked off the side, against a barbed wire 
fence beyond which a half dozen cows quench their 
thirst in a small pond. 

Only two weeks ago we were in Manhattan, 
breathing in exhaust and listening to the money- 
changers of Orchard Street, the dealers of Wash- 
ington Square Park, we were waiting in the hun- 
dred degree heat for the light on Broadway and 
Houston to change and for subway number 6 to 
clatter and screech its underworld arrogance so 
unlike the soft and rippling auctioneer's voice as it 
rolls and dips in accents and punctuated ecstasies 
through the farmland of Clinton Township where 
you know for a fact where the sun is stationed and 
the weather is nowhere obscured. 

Suddenly, between the leaves of large oaks, 
we see the tips of straw hats and bits of goaties 
gathered in a congregation. 

Off to the side, ice cream is sold just moments 
after being cranked through a machine run by 
pulleys and a generator; you could stand and watch 
a man adding cream, sugar, vanilla into the freezing 
shaft, hear it spinning, watch the women dipping 
their spoons and filling styro-foam cups beyond 
their brim for a dollar— no cash machine, no credit- 
cards, and, a little further off, a sign made out of 
blue paper and marker: roast beef: $2, donuts, 35C, 
the total calculated in their head. 

And the homemade pies: blueberry, cherry, 

Amish out from as far away as Centerville, 
Ohio: children smaller versions of their parents, 
older women selling freshly baked bread and home 
made pasta, teenage boys with their first growth of 
whiskers, old men with the smoke of pipes billow- 
ing out of long gray beards. 

And the items to be auctioned in an orderly 
scatter: farm equipment, hand sewn quilts, hang- 
ing plants, raspberry bush starters, garden tools, 
bluebird houses, rocking chairs crafted with oak 
and hickory branches steamed and twisted like 

A bag of jalopeno peppers, a basket of red 

Some folks mosey around, others chat in old 
German and Dutch, men in the bam, women on the 
porch of the enormous white farm house. 

I study the auctioneer. Himself Amish, no 
older than seventeen. Blue zipperless pants, like 
the rest, buttoned, with suspenders, straw hat with 
black band, like the rest. Bookish; face covered 
with pimples. Though his arms are powerful, he 
walks with a cane. His voice is quick and clear as 
he rattles through the numbers, stressing and point- 
ing, flipping his head this way and that so he can 
catch the bids that are made only with the subtlest 
of gestures: a sharper glance in an eye, a slight 
twitch of a forehead, a quick mumble. 

An older man, not Amish, approaches and 
starts to chat. 

He wears a white fisherman's cap, a blue 
worker's shirt with the name Bill sewn above the 
right pocket and mechanic sewn above the left. 

"See that auctioneer?" he asks, pointing. "I 
first met him at a cow auction. He came in with that 
cane and sat down on the bench next to me." 

Bill squints his eyes into the sun; his face is 
crusted and his skin almost gold as if he'd spent 
many hours in his own fields. "Lost both my legs,' 
"the kid told me. 'Lost them in a silo when I was 
four. My dad was still on the tractor and I ran off 
and climbed up the silo and he didn't know so when 
he turned it on he didn't know I was in there. Lost 
the left one up to my knee and the right one a little 
above my knee.'" 

Bill pauses and moves his face closer to mine. 
"He's damn good auctioneer, though. No one 
taught him. He must've practiced himself out in the 
pastures, walking on those artificial legs out where 
the cows were grazing and pointing at them and 
practicing the numbers, as if they were bidders." 

I imagine him, while his brothers and cousins 

(Continued Pg. 6) 

(Cont. Amish Auction) 

were sweating with their harrows and sickles, 
walking by himself with hobbled dignity in the 
pasture, mornings and afternoons, fooling with 
tone and tempo, stress and modulation like the 
Greek shepherd with the speech impediment who 
spoke to himself with marbles in his mouth in the 
empty hills above the sea for hours so he would one 
day become a famous orator. 

He wanted to be someone in his community. 

Now, the auctioneer has everyone's attention 
as he holds in his hands a rusted metal milk jug 
much older than he is that is being sold to help pay 
the local Amish schoolhouse. 

"O.K, do I hear $10.00? Someone give me 
$10.00. Yes or no?"

"Why am I here? I was on this earth when 
Jesus Christ wore shorts. The kids will be home 
from school and, for the first time ever, I won't be 
there to greet them. They'll need a shrink to get 
over the feeling of abandonment. The teacher isn't 
here yet. There's still time to i-un and if I do it now, 
maybe, I can get my money back. Oh shit, he's here. 
Not a good time to exit the dismal room that appears 
to be full of boys who aren't old enough to shave. 
I am stuck." 

The first day of my second stab at higher 
education. It had been eighteen years since the last 
time I flew up the snake-like driveway to Venango 
Campus. I managed to find my way to the class- 
room. It was dreary and impersonal. Even the 
wall-length windows weren't permitting any light 
to penetrate into that gloomy room. Immediately, 
I developed a case of urinary frequency which took 
four trips to the restroom to get under control. 1 
prayed that my bladder would give me a break so 
I wouldn't have to raise my finger for "number one" 
on the first day of class. I was a wi'eck but at least 
there were no nervous hives. Other students filed 
in. We sat together, in the dark, like trained seals, 
waiting for the teacher. I wonder if we were all 
thinking we would get detention if we turned on a 

A tall, gentle looking man bounded into the 
room. Just from his appearance I could tell he was 
an artist, possessing all the uniqueness that distin- 
guishes the artisan from the artless. His ebony hair 

was thin on top but flowing fi^om the sides to his 
neck. His dress was relaxed. Not a "suit" who 
would lecture me to tenninal boredom. He turned 
on the light both literally and figuratively for me. 
This class was going to be fine if only I could 
overcome by feeling of being older than dirt. 

I now have seventeen classes under my belt. 
Two major themes and several journal entries have 
been completed. 1 feel an extraordinary kinship 
with everyone in the dingy classroom which, from 
the time our melting pot of "adult learners" and 
"traditional students" enter, transforms into a 
brilliantly illuminated area filled with a group of 
charming, witty people, all in different stages of 
personal development. All of these remarkable 
people are me. In August, 1975,1 was the eighteen 
year-old, here because that was what was expected 
ofme upon completion of high school. I didn't take 
it seriously because there was somebody else pay- 
ing my tuition and all my other expenses. I skipped 
more classes than I attended. I hated to do the 
homework and I found it impossible to give the 
teachers my full attention. I despised the whole 
idea of college. I was earning money at McDonalds 
so why would I need to succeed in college in order 
to get a job? The "adult learners" were stodgy old 
people who were way too serious about everything. 
At the tender age of eighteen, my latest squeeze was 
much more important. Those "adult learners" were 
missing out on life. 

(Continued Pg 2) 

(The Hats continued) 

Imagine this! I am now the 
"adult learner" who no longer has 
anyone to foot the bill. I am now 
totally responsible for the finan- 
cial aspect of my education. 1 
want the most bang for my buck 
so I pay attention and complete 
what is required of me. Instead of 
thinking up creative excuses for 
missing class, I would like to 
think of creative excuses to go to 
class every day. There is so much 
to learn and if a class is skipped, 
a valuable knowledge is forfeited 
and a piece of the quilt will al- 
ways be missing. 

Someday I will thank Polk 
Center properly for placing me in 
the unsafe situation that resulted 
in me being seriously hurt. Re- 
tirement is fine for the elderly but 
for me, the pain from my injury 
was intensified by the lack of 
mental stimulation. I wrestled 
with the idea of returning to Ve- 
nango Campus but fear always 
won the match. No way would I 
fit in. When I finally decided to 
return, I was pleasantly surprised 
to find I blended very well with 
the diverse mix of students seek- 
ing knowledge. 

The difference between my 
first experience at Venango Cam- 
pus, twenty years ago, and my 
most pleasant return recently, is I 
am now focused on what I'm 
doing. 1 have a goal. I'm not any 
smarter than I was before, just 
rich with life experience. I am in

a position, as an "adult learner", 
to be more sensitive regarding 
the conduct of certain "traditional 
students". After all, I've worn 
both hats in my quest for higher 
learning at Venango Campus. I 
understand where they are in life 
but, at the same time, I wish I 
could convince them that they 
are lucky to be at Venango 
Compus at this stage of their lives. 
Back then, I was sure I had the 
weight of the world on my shoul- 
ders. Now, I'm certain I do. 
Being responsible for two chil- 
dren, a house, a car and now 
college while battling crippling 
pain, is not my idea of a picnic. I 
would rather be eighteen again, 
with no responsibilities except 
school, but that wasn't the path 
chosen for me by my maker. 
Hindsight is 20/20. 1 wish I could 
make a video of all my errors in 
judgement, so I could pop it into 
a VCR evertime I hear some 
"youngster" complain about a 
simple assignment or how an 
evening class screws up their so- 
cial life. My video would be 
useless though, because some 
things have to be experienced 
first hand. A TV screen isn't 
much of teacher. 

I know I will suceed be- 
cause of the hats I've worn. Soon, 
I hope to be the gifted teacher, 
mesmerizing my students with 
my own artistic abilities, prod- 
ding them along on their own 
path to the future. Yet another 
head covering I will be honored 
to wear.

I was making my list of food 
and people that would be at my 
house this Thanksgiving and the 
word "abundance" kept popping 
into my brain. 

There is always an abun- 
dance of turkey, cranberry relish, 
squashes and pies; not to forget 
the potatoes, homemade banana 
bread and zuchini bread, steamed 
apple pudding, and waldorf salad. 

We include the members 
from both our families, of which 
we are both one of seven chil- 
dren, and some friends who have 
no family in the area join us. This 
is abundance. 

As we join hands in prayer 
this holiday, I will give thanks 
and praise (as I do every day) for 
the abundance in our life at home 
as well as for the abundance of 
friends at school; the abundant 
knowledge that is there for the 
taking and the abundance of joy 
in life, that comes from giving.

The Warrior 

by John Grenci 

Evander Holyfield and Riddick Bowe fought 
for the third time on November 4 with Bowe 
winning by an eight round knock out. If there was 
one way I was certain Holyfield would not lose, it 
was by a knock out. Actually, it was not so much 
of a knockout as it was exhaustion. He simply fell 

The fight was very unusual . Holyfield looked 
very sharp in the first round and I'm thinking this 
guy doesn't look old, as the critics were saying. But 
by the end of the third round, he looked quite old. 
He was spent. Something was wrong. This was not 
the man who is always in great shape. Either he 
does have a bad heart , as was earlier thought to be 
the case or his virus of three weeks before and 
leading up to the fight got the best of him. Even 
George Foreman left his broadcasting booth during 
the fight ( something that is unheard of) to see about 
stopping the fight. 

I have gotten together with a few buddies to 
watch all three of their fights. It will go down as one 
of the great rivalries. I can still remember in the 
first fight when Holyfield weathered the 1 0th round 
and Larry Merchant of HBO (as only Larry Mer- 
chant could) said "If Evander Holyfield weighs 
205, his heart weighs 204." He ended up losing that 
fight. In the locker room afterwards, he had the 
look of a demoralized person and several people 
commented that "he won't come back from this 
beating". But he did. He beat Bowe in the rematch 
and it was one of the greatest fights you'll ever see. 

It is hard to imagine Holyfield coming back 
after this defeat. He is now 33 years old. But, hey, 
so was Jesus at the time of His crucifixion. Before 
I am accused of blasphemy, let me say that Jesus 
asked us to be perfect as God is perfect. In spite of 
being in the brutal sport of boxing, Holyfield has 
done that as well as anybody. 

If Holyfield does have a bad heart, I hope he 
retires. But whether he does or doesn't, I don't think 
he will. It's not in him. He said before the fight, "I 
believe I would rather die than just give up." I don't 
know if it will be against Mike Tyson or Riddick 
Bowe, or somebody else, but somehow, someway, 
there is a comeback left in boxing's greatest war-

Does everyone know the one 
about the statues that Dick Francis 
found good enough to include in 
one of his masterful mysteries? 
Seems a man statue and a lady 
statue stood on pedestals for a 
thousand years, through sun, rain, 
snow, and sleet. One day an 
angel appeared and said, "Be- 
cause you two have stood so pa- 
tiently for ten centuries, you now 
have an hour as living persons. 
Go. " Rushing of man and lady to 
bushes, strong rustling of bushes 
and back to pedestals. "But you 
dear persons," said the angel, 
"You have used but a half hour." 
Rushing of man and lady offped- 
e.yto/, "O.K., thistime I'll hold the 
pigeon and you s — on it." Or, 
what Venango needs is a little 

humor. It takes muscles to 

frown but only to smile?

Nature's Medicine and Cures 

We all know that a lot of prescription drugs are 
made from herbs and plants, some very common 
to us. The Indians Medicine Man gathered his 
plants very carefully, knowing instinctively what 
they would be good for by the shape or color of the 
plant. There is a lot of controversy about tobacco 
these days. Here is some information as to what the 
Indian doctor may use it for. 

Tobacco is found by experience to be good to 
expectorate phlegm from the stomach, chest and 
lungs. The juice, which can be sweetened or 
distilled or made into a syi"up without losing its 
usage, is a remedy for worms. It will ease the 
headache and gas pains. It will help expel the 
kidney stones naturally. 

The seed is effective to cure a toothache and 
the ashes of tobacco will cleanse the gums and 
whiten the teeth. 

The juice is said to be good to kill lice on 
children's heads and if applied to any green wound 
or cut, will cure it quite effectively and will cleanse 
and heal an old sore.

Who's Who Personal 

Lost Leaves 

The red leaf 
dances slowly 
from the maple, 

folded inward, 
like an envelope 
with tiny veins 
scribbled on the face, 

and lands 
in the dead 
letter pile, 

to be raked 
away with others, 
never reaching 
their true destination. 

by Kathy Speer 

The 1996 edition of WHO'S 
AND COLLEGES will include 
the names of 8 students from 
Clarion University of Pennsyl- 
vania- Venango who have been 
selected as national outstanding 
campus leaders. 

Campus nominating com- 
mittees and editors of the annual 
directory have included thenames 
of these students based on their 
academic achievement, service 
to the community, leadership in 
extracurricular activities and po- 
tential for continued success. 

They join an elite group of 
students from more than 1800 
institutions of higher learning in 
all 50 states, the District of Co- 
lumbia and several foreign 

Outstanding students have 
been honored in this annual di- 
rectory since 1934. 

Students named this year 
from Clarion University of PA - 
Venango are: Susan M Harry, 
Robert Joseph Heichel, Sally 
Dolan, MaryLee Riley, Cindy 
C. Jarzab, Wendy Lynn 
Girtman, Barbara A. Mosier, 
Stevette Wood. 


Vision has become a nine- 
ties buzzword. Management gu- 
rus tell us that all of us. . individu- 
als, organizations, families., need 
a vision. Stephen Covey says, 
begin vnth the end in mind. In 
other words, begin with a vision. 
Peter Senge, Joel Barker, Tom 
Peters all say that vision is power. 
In Barker's words, "vision is the 
most forceful motivator for 
change that you and I possess." 

Personal Visioning is the 
theme of a full day conference to 
be held here at Venango Campus 
on January 11, 1996. 

This seminar will cover what 
vision is, why it works, and why 
it is so powerful. It covers a 
process that enables one to create 
his or her own personal vision 
statement, the stumbling blocks 
that stand in the way of attaining 
a vision; not the least of which is 
chaotic ambiance of the latter 
twentieth century. It also in- 
cludes various ways of checking 
the vision against one's values so 
you know you will still want your 
vision after it is achieved

ALO Reflects 

The annual ALO Thanksgiving Dinner held 
on Friday November 1 7 was an enjoyable time for 
all who attended. There were over 160 people; 
comfy but not overly crowded. 

The ceiling and table decorations were warm, 
attractive, charming, & beautifully Thanksgiving 
spirited, provided by Darlene Hartman. 

The blessing was offered by Lou Adelson, 
who was thankful for an extended family through 
friends on campus, and remembered those who 
have no family, no warmth from the snow and no 
visible relief from hardships. 

Students arrived with their tureens and fami- 
lies, filling Rhoades wath great amounts of food, 
desserts, and people. The caterers (Zacherls) filled 
the table with the traditional turkey, stuffing and 
potatoes. The door prize, a colorful fall floral 
basket made by Darlene Hartman, was won by 
Jakki Helmbold. Congratulations Jakki! 

The band arrived about 30 minutes early, 
which was perfectly O.K. with us. We were able to 
enjoy great music before and during dinner. Darlene 
Hartman and Mark Vath had to be asked to stop 
dancing because they were interfering with the 
traffic flow at the dessert table. 

ALO would like to thank the Business Club 
for sponsoring the five piece Clarion Campus All 
Brass Band for our Thanksgiving dinner. 

Out of 7 submissions to the Essay Contest(up 
from 4 last year) three winners were selected by 
judges Lou and Darlene. Diane Morrison placed 
third and Barbara Koehler took second place. 
Cynthia C. Jarzab was first place winner! Con- 
gratulations to each of the winners and to all who 
submitted their essays. The judges expressed the 
difficult time they had in selecting the winners. 

We are in a sense a family with many things 
in common. This time of gathering gave us the 
opportunity to bring together our natural families 
and our extended family. Thank you to all who 
were able to attend this celebration of Thanksgiv- 
ing at Venango Campus.

To Be Loved Like That 

Over the past five years, I've had these 
reoccuring dreams about Rich, an old boyfriend, 
and myself, Victory. We faded away after five 
months of building a trusting, honest, and open 
relationship. We'd known each other since child- 
hood and I truly believe we were in love, but never 
talked about it, as if it was always understood. We 
made silent vows and kept them. 

The dreams became more frequent after 
his call a couple weeks ago. I didn't tell him about 
my dreams, only listened as he told me his. 

"I'm standing in the middle of a field frill 
of forget-me-nots. This woman in a wedding gown 
walks up to me. Her veil's over her face and I kiss 
her. When I pull away, her face is a skeleton oozing 
with mud and magets. ' ' 

How could I tell him mine were the same 
only a man in a tuxedo? 

"This dream is getting to me because I 
keep..." He swallowed hard, "...hearing this 
song. Anyway, the shrink told me to contact you. ' ' 
No fuzz came over the line as we were quiet. "We 
have to see each other. Come up. ' ' 

I accepted whole heartidly. 

The week after I started wondering how 
our dreams were connected and what they meant? 
The dreams came every night. I couln't wait to see 

Upon arrival in Lovelorn, I stopped by my 
old apartment where Rich and I spent our time. 
Staring at the bay window, I recalled dancing with 
him in silence to the song in our hearts. All over 
again, I swore I'd heard him whisper he loved me. 
On the way to the only hotel in town, I 
realized Lovelorn, the tovm I ' d left, but where Rich 
stayed, hadn ' t changed except the names and faces. 

The name of the hotel had changed as well 
as its face. The wallpaper was now red roses on 
black velvet background. When I walked in my 
room, the wallpaper began melting. My favorite 
color and Rich's were blending together. 

by Lora Lamb 

Definately a lack of sleep, but I had to write all 
that's happened before I contacted Rich to tell 
him I'm early. I didn't want to forget. Something 
might happen. I don't know what, but I feel 

Victory didn't see Rich. The dreams and 
tune overwhelmed him. He left to see her {as she 
was traveling to see him}, but he died in a car 

Devistated, Victory went to his grave un- 
der the massive oak at the top of the hill in the local 
Lovelorn cemetary. Through the heavy rain, she 
stared at the double heart tombstone and knew who 
he expected to be there. She even laid under the 
unmarked heart and cried for the love they knew. 
I found her with a note in her hands telling 
whoever found her she wanted to be buried beside 
Rich. There was music playing- a tape compiled of 
one verse over and over... 

"Nothing else could ever take you away 
from me cause you'll always be my dream come 

After years of searching for my parents, 
this is what I found instead. I was given my 
mother's diary: Thirty years long. My father, 
Rich, didn't know I exsisted and Victory moved, 
putting me up for adoption. If she would have told, 
he would have stayed. We could have been a 

I read her diary and cried while thinking of 
the love and death they shared. I read of a fairytale 
love between my parents and cried even more, 
wishing to be loved like that.

Clarion University of PA 

Executive Dean Has Message For Students 

The semester is rapidly drawing to a close and 
final exams are now here. I wanted to take this 
opportunity in the last issue of the Venango Voice 
for this term to reflect on my experiences here this 
fall as your new Executive Dean and to tell you 
some of the things we have achieved this term and 
expect to see happening in the semester ahead. 

You may have observed some changes al- 
ready. The computers in the laboratory have been 
recently upgraded to eight megabytes of memory- 
-you may notice they run faster. This will enable 
us to set up a "Windows" operating environment 
and to begin using ' 'Windows" based software. I 
am expecting that you will see other improvements 
in the laboratory next term as well. Several printers 
will be ordered for the campus soon and some will 
be installed in the computer laboratory as well as in 

More high technology change will come next 
teiTn with the introduction of an interactive video 
link between the Clarion and Venango Campuses. 
The telephone lines and connections are being 
installed and the system will be operational by 
January. The terminus on this campus will be 
located on the stage of the Rhoades auditorium. 
The curtained area of the stage provides flexibility 
and an optimal environment for soundand lighting. 
If things go according to plan, a few classes will be 
offered by video in the Spring term and by Fall 
1996 more classes will be available. The video 

would not otherwise be able to provide because of 
limited demand. The interactive video connection 
will also let us conduct meetings between the 

An even more visible change on campus next 
term will be the new draperies we are selecting for 
the classrooms in Frame and the new vertical 
blinds for Rhoades and for the Frame offices. They 
should be arriving by mid-semester. Also by that 
time we are hoping that in one classroom, Frame 
208, new tables and chairs will have replaced the 
traditional student desks. It was a high priority 
request from student government. 

Programmatically the most significant change 
for the long term future is the development of the 
Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant Program. 
This program has been approved by the University 
faculty committees, the Provost and the President 
and will soon be sent to the Trustees and to the State 
System office; it is expected to receive endorse- 
ment from both. We also expect to hear within a 
few days of the action of the American Occupa- 
tional Therapy Association (the national accredita- 
tion agency) on our application. If that review is 
positive we will soon be able to admit students for 
entry into the program next year. We will provide 
more details on the new program next semester. 

There have, of course, been disappointments. 
Things do not always move as quickly or in the 
ways we hope. We were unsuccessful, for the mo- 

(Continued page 4) 


Well, it's finals week folks. 
I would like to wish every one of 
you here at Venango Campus a 
whole hearted good luck. Don't 
forget to study, eat well, and get 
plenty of rest. As my eleventh 
grade history teacher use to say 
"This too shall pass." Have faith 
and be patient. Again, good luck, 
as if you people really need it.

Sports Prediction 

by John Grenci 

It is December and that 
means, Finals, Christmas, and 
NFL playoffs. It would of course 
be inappropriate to predict what 
students are going to do on their 
finals, and about the only predic- 
tion you can make for Christmas 
is that there is a good chance it 
will fall on the 25th. The NFL 
playoffs are different. Everyone 
wants to chime in with their pre- 
dictions around this time so 1 will 
give mine. 

In the NFC, the two finalists 
will be the 49ers and the Cow- 
boys. I believe that if they were 
to meet 10 times, they would 
each win 5 times. But they only 
play once, and the home field 
advantage means a lot, and it 
figures to go to Dallas (they have 
a better record as of this wi'iting). 
We will assume they get it and 
BaiTy Switzer finds a way to win 
a big NFL game. So, Dallas goes 
to the Super Bowl. 

In the AFC, it is a much more 
muddled picture. As usual, it 
appears that there is no dominant 
team. The Steelers are playing as 
well as anybody, and at 9-4 have 
the second best record in the 
league. The Chiefs have the best 
record (11-2), although some of 
their wins have not been that 
impressive. They are probably 
not as good as their record. 

The Raiders have a sol id team 

and are playing with enthusiasm 

since moving back to Oakland. 

The Dolphins always have a 

great offense, but have lost 3 of 

their last 4 and still don't have a 

The Bills are 8-5, and line- 
backer Bryce Paup is on his way 
to being defensive player of the 

John Elway can get hot at any 
given time, so we can't count the 
Broncos out. 

Where does that leave us? 
Intangibles. The one that comes 
to mind is that the Bills will never 
live down their 4 straight Super 
Bowl losses until they win one, 
and still have the nucleus of the 
those teams intact. This could be 
their last hun-ah. They lost to the 
49ers a few weeks ago but could 
have beaten them. They were 
tied 10-10 in the third quarter 
when running back Darrick 
Holmes fumbled deep in the 49er 
territory, and the 49ers ran it back 
96 yards for a touchdown. That 
is a 14 point swing, and proved to 
be the difference. 

So, it is the Bills and the 
Cowboys in the Super Bowl . The 
cowboys will probably be at least 
10 point favorites, but I'll pick 
the Bills in an upset; 27-17

Orphanage One 

by Rebecca Christy 

The delicate orphanage 
residing between the 
tough accordian folds 
of my navel, explodes 
with golden longing. 

My child body aches, 
a hollow orphanage, 
the earth, waiting 
for an emerald-winged 
hummingbird to fly me 
on her glittering back, 

to teach me to slurp 
the flowers' frosting 
with a curled tongue 
and roll the sweet warmth 
around in my mouth. 

Dear Friends, 

Thank you all for the flow- 
ers, cards, prayers and good 
wishes. It's a good feeling to 
know that people care so much 
about you. Hope to see you all 
soon and Happy Holidays!

ment, in our attempt to develop a new program in 
radiologic technology. I also know that several 
students have wiitten to me of their disappointmentin 
the cancellation of the history course on Fascism. 
I regret that it was canceled; it probably should not 
have been listed in the schedule in the first place. A 
careful review of past course enrollments in history 
courses led us to the conclusion that for this term it 
was probably best to offer just one course. 1 am 
hopeful that we can get this course in the schedule 
some time in the near future. I appreciate your 
disappointment and hope you understand the ne- 
cessity of the action. 

Concerns over course scheduling, classroom 
furniture, and new equipment point to the need for 
continued communication within our community. I 
plan to ti7 to find ways to open communication 
between the students and the university more here 
at Venango. I expect to meet regularly with your 
student Senate and to begin holding open forums 
with the student body one or two times aterm. I also 
try to have lunch or dinner in the snack bar at least 
once or twice a week. On those occasions I try to 
chat with students and to listen to their concerns. If 
you see me there please stop and talk. 

I have enjoyed getting to meet the students 
here and unfortunately have not had as much 
oppodunity to meet as many as I would like. My 
children were delighted to participate in the A. L 
.0. Halloween party and we were sony we could 
not get to the Thanksgiving dinner. I understand it 
was a sellout! My wife and I enjoyed the annual 
dinner cruise on the Gateway Clipper this fall as 
well as the winter dinner dance last Friday. We 
look forward to attending future activities as we 
become part of this community. 

As the term draws to a close and the holiday 
season approaches may I wish you all a joyous 
holiday and happy new year. 1 look forward to 
seeing you here on campus again in January.

knowledge of ourselves in intro-

proceed by syllogistic reasoning 
from such principles.

Jump Into The New With Both Feet 

It's notji4st a new year orjust a new semester were are into, it's a time of new ideas, newgoals. We're 
heading for the 21st century. 

Didn't we all spend time thinking, even arguing with ourselves about those "New Year Resolutions"? 
My resolution was to eat three meals a day. I love to cook but I don 't take the time to eat. Day one I blew 
it. I spent the day cleaning out the garbage from the holiday, listening to music and carrying firewood 
through the snow. Suddenly it was bed time and I realized Ihadn 'tput anything good into my stomache. 
What three meals? 

Lyingin bed I had my usual end ofthe day chat with God. "Howis it that I didn't keep my resolution 
even one day? "I asked. As always His answer was simple and straightforward. "You Were Not Focused. 
You Did Not Work At It. " 

/ had to change my resolution. I don 't want to miss out on anything new, good, exciting. I won 't 
complain when there are not enough hours in the day to watch TV-Nothing New There! I won 't worry 
and stress out over my studies this term- That is something New! I will work at staying focused. That 
way I will accomplish everything I want to and I will not miss out on the new experiences this day and 
time bring us. I have faith but faith with out work is dead. So I will work. 

It is time to jump into each day with both feet, a smile in our heart and a lilt in each step. We can 
reach the 21st century walking on the troubled waters.

Women Empowering Women 

You Are Not Alone 
by Barbara Koehler 

Look at us, you are not alone. 

We've been battered and broken, 

Yet we look so whole. 

We've watched the drugs and the booze, 

Destroy lives, steal souls. 

We have mending hearts and broken homes. 

Look at us, we've fought for our health 
Against disease and death. 
Partners have left us, 
Empty children just guess, 
As we battle a system 
That says we are less. 

Look at us, you are not alone, 
We're all here together 
Learning to stand on our own. 
Look at us, we need a friend 
As we pick ourselves up 
And start over again. 

Women Empowering Women is a support group that shares ideas, teaches effective commu- 
nication skills, and deals with relationship problems in an informal peer setting. 

Many have shown interest in this group, but finding a time convenient for all of us has been 
our main problem. Let us know what time would be better for you. Please fill out this form and 
drop it off at the Rhoades desk before February 5, 1996.

Vienna Choir Boys 

Chance Of A Lifetime 

For nearly five centuries, 
the Vienna Choir Boys have en- 
chanted millions with their unique 
charm and exceptionally beauti- 
ful singing. 

Founded by Emperial De- 
cree in 1498, they first visited the 
United States in 1932. They have 
given thousands of concerts and 
become the most popular choir 
ever to tour North America. 

Each season a new choir of 
boys carries on the rich traditions 
of Vienna's musical life, tracing 
it's roots to figures such as Mozart, 
Hayden, and Schubert. 

In concert, they present su- 
perbly entertaining programs that 
feature short operettas (in cos- 
tume), sacred works, and a broad 
range of secular and folk music. 

This is the MUST SEE con- 
cert of the decade! Co-sponsored 
by Venango Christian High 
School; Oil City Arts Council; 
and Franklin Fine Arts Council. 

You will never get another 
chance at such a low cost, just 
$12 in advance, at the Book- 
store. The door price is $ 1 5.

Spring returns, old friends 
sprout from the earth. A com- 
mon plant, most of us recognize 
is the violet. It's edible, medici- 
nal and pleasant to look at. 

The flowers bloom some- 
time in March or April and last 
into the summer. 

Right now there is a poison- 
ous flower in bloom, the Black 
Hellebore. Pretty but don't touch!

His lightly grayed brown 
hair was askew at the part, the 
ends were split, and the dryness 
was unremedyable even with con- 
ditioner. Bottom line, he needed 
a hair cut. The eight months of 
growth made the length a couple 
inches past the neckline. 
Rodregous looked at himself, 
thinking he wouldn't look half 
bad if he had a trim, straightened 
the part, and ponied the length. 
The Boys-in-Suit would have a 
hay day; Stiffnecks. 

He shuffled to a corner 
where he picked out two of the 
cleaner dirty shirts from the pile 
of clothes and a half clean pair of 
jeans. All of it reeked of smoke 
(cigarettes and pot) and beer. 
Occasionally, someone puked on 
him. He'd rinse out the shirt or 
jeans, never washing them, be- 
cause appearances needed to be 
kept: A small town drunk on 
Social Security. 

"Whatfun." He'dtoldthe 
captain after getting the assign- 
ment. "Consult undercover." The 
captain laughed at him. 

Seven-thirty-two am, 
glowed the digital clock through 
the dimness of the run down hotel 
room. He didn't want to open the 
curtains. The looks of the place 
were bad enough in the dark. The 
entire place needed condemned. 
Dressed, Rodregous left his room. 

Fist holes were everywhere, 
wall paper flaked off the ceiling 
in sheets and the linoleum was 
muddy and ripped and the floors 
leaned inward to the center of the 

The squeaky screen door 
slammed itself shut behind him 
as Rodregous huffed a vapor in 
the cold air. He checked his 
cheap wrist watch; Seven-forty- 
five. ETA to Darrel's, fifteen 
minutes, he thought as he tried to 
walk slow and feeble. An actor, 
Rodregous thought, I'd be mak- 
ing millions in Hollywood, but 
no. ..I'm out here making pen- 

He shook his pocket with 
quarters and dimes in the amount 
of five dollars. Limits, he thought. 
Everyone has their limits, but not 
all know what they are. Under- 
cover wouldn't have known that, 
he mumbled to himself, keeping 
up with his appearance: In Rome, 
do as the Romans. 

He tried the door to Darrel's 
Tavern. Locked. Doubling back 
a few doors, Rodregous tried 
Francis' Feed and Fuzz. Locked. 
He must look like a jonesing 
drunk - his image and that was 
good. He went down to the end 
of the block to try the other door. 
As he turned the comer, Larry, 
the real town drunk, was shuf- 
fling up the street. Rodregous 
became bar mates with him from 
the first morning drink on the 
first day. Larry might be a drunk 
but over the months, Rodregous 
found him very useful and full of 
information as well as gossip. 
Just the thing Rodregous needed 
to do his job. 

(Cont. page 3) 

(Downtown People) 

He waited for Larry, watch- 
ing him and thinking the man 
looked too old for fifty. 
Larry crossed the street against 
the light. Rodregous checked his 
watch. Seven-fifty-five. Better 
stick with Larry and find out 
some more about the downtown 
people, he thought. 

' ' Seen Joe with another girl 
last night." Rodregous said as 
Larry came up to him. 
' ' Yeah . ' ' Rodregous looked up 
and down the street as Larry 
talked. "Millie, the cow." 

Main street went 
north\south, crossing both 
east\west one way main streets. 
"I don't see how he keeps up 
with them all." 

The east\west streets 
merged in one on each end of 
town. Atthe west end, his hotel. 
At the east end, Barrel's and 
eleven bars in between. 
Larry watched his feet as he 
shuffled ahead. "A different one 
anytime he wants." 

In this town, your either a 
drunk or a church goer, 
Rodregous thought. 

" You ' d think he was a stud 
or something." 

"Maybe he is." Or some- 
thing, Rodregous thought and 
tried the rear (or front-depending 
on what side of the building you 
were on) door to Darrel's. He 
held it open for Larry, who had a 
I-need-a-beer look on his face as 
he stepped up into the doorway. 
"Shut the door, Rod. It's cold!" 
The usual brown haired bartender 

Rodregous took a deep 

breath, setting his mind for his 
job, and entered the dim bar. 
After his eyes adjusted, he saw 
Larry seated on his usual stool 
right in front of the TV.. 
Rodregous called for a seven and 
seven as he shuffled, putting big- 
ger holes in the Salvation Army 
boots. He moved the stool next to 
Larry over a little before exchang- 
ing five quarters with Donna for 
the drink. 

Sitting, Rodregous hung his 
head and listened to Donna re- 
mind Larry to count his straws. 
Larry mumbled how unfair the 
rule was cause no one else had it. 
"No more than ten." Donna 
took Larry's empty glass and 
tossed the straw on the bar next to 
the first. 

In another hour he'll be 
trashed, Rodregous thought. 
The men watched the morning 
news together. A few senior 
citizens came in and one was a 
regular. Rodregous checked the 
clock above the register; Nine- 
thirty; Computing in his brain 
these facts: The regular was ac- 
companied by a male friend and 
two women. Rodregouscouldn't 
tell how elderly they were, but 
knew he'd never seen them be- 

Larry was finishing his tenth 
drink and the senior citizen squad 
were sipping their second beer. 
Rodregous had only drank three- 
fourths of his first. Limitation, 
he thought. We all need to know 
our limits. 

Donna gathered Larry's 
straws and wiped the bar clean as 
Larry staggered out the door. 
"He's just gonna go next door, 
sweetheart." Rodregous said. 

"Let them put up with him." 

The regular came up for four 
more beers, bringing the empties 
with him. Donna opened new 
bottles. Chi-ching went the cash 
register. Clank went the empties. 
She switched the TV to the Price 
is Right, sat, and lit a smoke. 
Routine and boring. Life day in 
and day out, Rodregous thought. 
A fat, old black woman came in, 
taking her usual seat behind the 
jukebox. As Donna took her a 
cola, the woman tore open a 
smoke and stuffed the tobacco in 
her lip. Rodregous looked away. 
One of the elderly was putting 
money in the jukebox. 
How he wished his assignment 
could be over? These people 
were so mundane. He needed 
adrenaline to live and thrive. He 
swallowed the last of his drink, 
plunking the glass on the bar and 
sucking air through his teeth, 
which he hadn't brushed in a 

"He says his name is Wil- 
liam, but I'm sure it ' s Bill, Mack, 
or Buddy. . . ' ' Rodregous chuck- 
led at the lyrics. Donna handed 
him another drink and he handed 
her five more quarters. Chi-ching 
went the register. Donna lit a 

Rodregous checked the 
clock to brake the monotone. 

Big Frank, a regular after- 
noon downtown person, waddled 
up to the bar. He was short, 
greasy and the stool couldn't be 
seen under him when he sat. 

All the afternoon regulars 
came in. Bucak, the last of them, 

(Continued page 4) 

(Downtown People) 

knocked a chair over on the way to the bar. Donna 
gave him a beer warning him not to cause trouble, 
her shift was almost over. 

' ' Who ' s coming on? " Rodregous asked her. 
"Robin begged for her job back." 

Robin came in the door by the other end of the 
bar. Donna rolled her eyes at Rodregous. 
Bucak stumbled to the other end of the bar near the 
pool table and the door Robin entered. He almost 
fell as he sat. "Anybody got a..." He yelled and 
put his thumb and index finger together and to his 
lips. He sucked in. 

Rodregous knew the street sign for pot. No 
one answered Bucak, but the sign was intended for 
Robin, who was fired because she was caught 
screwing Joe on the jukebox at the end of her night 
shift. Incidentally, when she begged for her job 
back, Robin was put strictly on afternoons. Joe was 
the man, the stud, the boss, the pimp; Whatever 
they called the dealers these days. 

He looked over at Robin and Donna near the 
register counting bottles. He circled round to the 
elderly foursome, who were pretty pi-eyed. The 
old black woman had left. The twins, Terri and 
Toni WTiite, were playing shuffle board on the far 
wall. Terri, the tallest, caught his stare and winked. 
Rodregous turned, wanting no part of girls Joe had 
been out with. Bucak slept, clutching his beer on 
the table. Big Frank was cracking peanuts and 
sipping beer through a straw. 

An endless circle of lives caught up in alcohol 
and drugs. He slammed his empty glass on the bar. 
He was a part of it, but he wouldn't be much longer. 
The drop was to be today. 

The twangy country music slipped through 
his train of thought. He looked at the clock. 
Eleven-fifteen. Time was going too slow. His 
sixth sense said something was happening. 

Joe Broodwick entered with Julie, a soft, 
oriental girl. Joe, clad in Australian style, walked 
up to the bar on the other side of Big Frank. They 
ordered drinks and when Joe's change was placed 
on the bar, Julie snagged a quarter. She clanked the 
pool balls into action while Joe picked a stick. 

Joe was early. 

The phone rang just as Julie lifted the holder 
off the balls. 

"Broodwick. Phone." Robin yelled. 
"That's 'oo' to you, baby." 

"Yeah. Whatever." Robin waved him away. 
Joepicked up the receiver. "Twelve. Yeah. Noon, 
you moron." 

Rodregous checked the clock. Eleven-forty- 
five. He scanned the bar. The foursome were 
leaving. Donna joined Terri and Toni at the shuffle 
board game. Terri winked again. One last time, he 
thought, but not winking back. Bucak was still 
sleeping. Big Frank was now eating the popcorn 
Robin had put out in baskets. It was over. Finally. 
He downed his drink. Eleven-fifty. 

He slightly glanced at Joe on the way out and 
took a quick peek at Julie's bottom. HE couldn't 
resist. Adrenaline pumped in his veins once more. 
HE was alive! 

Outside the boys sat in their cars. One across 
the street at the bank, one near the light at the end 
of the block, and one in fi-ont of the Feed and Fuzz. 
Rodregous put all five fingers up at the car parked 
in the bank and walked away from the downtown

Do You Fit the Profile? 

What does it take to be a successful student? 
According to recent research on the learning and 
thinking strategies of successful learners, here are 
four strategies: 

*Ask questions of new material presented in 
lectures or books-thinking about which question 
the material answers and which it does not. 

*Break up large tasks and complex ideas into 
manageable parts 

*Direct your studies to meet the goals of the 
instructor (objectives) 

*Take feedback, testing yourself informally 
to see how much you are learning 

*This article can be found in Success in 
College & Beyond , Marcia Heiman and Joshua 

You can learn these strategies and increase 
your potential for being a successful student. Call 
Darlene, Ext. 283 or stop by RM 208, MH to find 
out how you can shape your profile into that of a 
successful, active student. 

Attention New Students 

If you have not reviewed the results of your 
College Student Inventory, you may make an

Your Right and Your Duty 

by Tammy Hernan 

In the past week, I have been informed of the 
following: "The President stinks." "Dole is an old 
fogy still trying to make his mark in the political 
arena." "Newt is an overweight Alfred E Newman 
on a power trip." "Politicians are crooks. They 
should be kicked out of office." The only problem 
with these "critics of government" is that none are 
registered voters. I feel reasonably safe in my 
assumption that all are well beyond the legal voting 

These "arm chair political analysts" and the 
thousands like them, have the power to change the 
results of an election. Did you know that most local 
elections are won or lost by only a margin of two 
to three hundred votes? Imagine that! The student 
body of Venango Campus could change the out- 
come of an election, yet, there are many of us who 
won't register to vote! Avoidance of jury duty is no 
longer a valid excuse (I'm not sure it ever was). 
Now if you are a licensed driver, you are a potential 

It is your right and your duty to vote, but first 
you must take five minutes to register. It doesn't 
cost a thing and you don't even have to leave your 
house to do it. You can call the voter registration 
office in your county courthouse and they will send 
you a form to fill out and return to them, postage 
paid. It's that simple. Don't you think it's time you 
take advantage of a right our forefathers fought so 
hard to protect? You can make a difference. 

"In All Directions " 

Here on Campus, life is now in high gear and 
we may be feeling like we are going in all direc- 
tions. We in Montgomery 205 are! So look out - 
we are the Pathfinder, your loyal yearbook staff 
and we're out to get you (on film of course!). 

The theme for this year's Pathfinder is, "In All 
Directions", and if you would like to help us from 
going in too many directions, you could submit to 
us, pictures of your clubs, organizations, events, or 
even yourself Let's work together to make this 
Pathfinder great! 

Drop off your contributions at the Bookstore 
or give them to one of the yearbook staff memebers. 
Remember, the Yearbook Club meets on Mondays 
in Room 207, Montgomery, fi-om 12:00 till 1:00. 
We'd like to wash you a wonderful term and may all 
your directions lead to success! 

IfsA Tough World 

by John Grenci 

Neil O'Donnell choked, at least according to 
some people. I think that is an unfair assessment of 
how he played. First of all, the Steelers were 13 
point underdogs. The Steelers played better than 
expected, having "beaten the spread." It wasn't all 
defense either, since the Steelers scored 1 7 points, 
a respectable showing. The statistics on O'Donnell 
read 28 completions in 49 attempts for some 250 
yards with one touchdown and three interceptions.

semester's Open House. 

It's A Tough World 

Of course the last intercep- 
tion came on the last play of the 
game, so in effect, he threw two 
interceptions. Yes, they may have 
been the two worst passes in Su- 
per Bowl history. But sometimes 
it is not so much a matter of being 
bad as it is being unlucky. What 
if his two errant throws resulted 
in incompletions? We've all seen 
that happen. If they would have 
been incompletions, nobody 
would say a thing. 

Let's say a running back 
rushes for 1 90 yards and scores a 
couple touchdowns and is named 
the player of the game. Let's also 
assume during the game he 
fumbled twice, even possibly at 
crucial times, but both times his 
teammates recovered. The next 
day the papers would say nothing 
about those fumbles. He would 
be a hero. You might be thinking 
"Big deal, the actual passes were 
intercepted!" Tha's true. My 
point is that sometimes luck is a 
factor in determining an outcome. 
Certainly, bad luck does not keep 
somebody from being the goat. 
O'Donnell was the goat. Did he 
have a bad game? I don't think so . 

The Steelers outgained the 
Cowboys in total yards, only the 
second time in history the losing 
team in the Super Bowl has done 
that. After the first interception, 
some quarterbacks would have 
folded, but O'Donnell did any- 
thing but that. The next two 
Steeler drives resulted in a field 
goal and a touchdown, while 
O'Donnell had 10 completions 
in 1 1 attempts. I'm not sure how 

many quarterbacks could do that, 
let alone in their first Super Bowl. 
All in all, O'Donnell had an aver- 
age game. He did not have a bad 
game. If you choose to point to 
the two costly interceptions, then 
you are going to have to point out 
the successful Steeler drives, of 
which O'Donnell played a cru- 
cial role. 

Before the game, I said 
O'Donnell was one of the six or 
seven best quarterbacks in the 
National Football League, and 
he did notheing in the Super Bowl 
to make me change my mind. 
Ten years from now, will people 
remember O'Donnell as having 
an average game? Absolutely 
not. It's a tough world.

The Stranger and The Spell 

by Lora Lamb 

Upon a mountain top 

High above, far the drop. 

Lives a Spell in a castle 

So secure, with no hassle. 

Far, far below her 

Lives the handsome stranger 

In his cottage under the sun 

In the village where children run. 

The Spell one day looks 
In her memory books 
Finds the Stranger there 
Sitting in a castle chair. 
In his cottage the stranger sees 
Someone is upon their knees 
Trying to find him, 
But the vision is dim. 

The Stranger goes to his window 
Looks far beyond the meadow, 
And sees the castle dull and dreary. 
Thinks of the Spell, becomes weary. 
He was once upon the mountain top, 
Happily he did hop 
Merrily all through the day. 
The sunshine would never go away. 

The Spell had cast him out, you know, 

Never a reason; She said, "Just go." 

So, he went upon his way. 

Not knowing what would become of the day, 

Till he wandered down; 

The snow began to fall, he did frown. 

The Stranger leaving was sad. 

But for the Spell, oh, too bad. 

The Spell, still staring. 

Her heart started caring; 

She wanted the sunshine back. 

But what could she have lacked. 

To make her give the Stranger away; 

How awful was that day. 

She must now bid him return 

So the sun, upon her face, would bum. 

See, the Spell once had beauty 
When she had her duty. 
Her hair was of golden bright 
When in her castle there was light. 
Her eyes did shine a baby blue; 
A reflection of the sky so true. 
Her face was smooth as silk. 
No sign of whiteness found in milk. 

Her body was curved, defined. 

Happily in love was her heart and mind. 

Her feet danced gaily. 

Her smile was daily, 

Till she let the Stranger go. 

How was the Spell to know 

He would take the sun from her? 

Now her heart needed to confer. 

Through the village the Stranger walked. 

Knowing how the Spell talked. 

He could feel it in his heart; 

The Spell wanted another start. 

He began his journey with roses and wine 

Hoping to get upon the mountain in time. 

He needed the Spell; 

He wished her well. 

At the bottom, the Stranger did look 
To the covered top the snow took. 
The clouds abated fi-om the sky. 
The sun was true, it had no lie. 
The Stranger began to climb, 
He knew it would take time 
To reach the top to bring life 
To make the Spell, maybe his wife. 

The Spell lay upon her bed 

Too weary to raise her head. 

She could hear the clouds roll away; 

She knew this was a special day. 

The Spell began to twitch her fingers. 

But the uneasiness in her heart, it still lingers. 

She could feel sensation in her toes. 

He is coming. Yes, he knows. 

(Continued Page 6) 

The Stranger and The Spell 

As the Stranger ascended 

The moss that lay upon the floor 

Shrank afraid, to return never more. 

His voice rang through the halls, 

All evil took their falls. 

The sun sprang through. 

The portraits drew 

A smile upon their faces, 

Dust lifted from the cases, 

The armor that stood throughout 

The Spell's heart, it mended. 

When he reached the castle door, 

She lay there in her bed no more, 

The snow melted into a river. 

The castle no more to shiver. 

The tree upon the mountain bloomed. 

The green, green grass was no longer doomed. 

The Stranger entered, looked about 
For the Spell he did shout. 
The webs of spiders came crashing. 
The walls were lite and dashing, 
Shined in splendor without a doubt. 
The castle knew the Strangers return. 
The candles would remain to bum. 

The Spell looked into the mirror. 

Feeling a bit inferior. 

Till her gown of silk became white. 

Her hair grew to the color of light. 

She could feel the sun in her eyes 

Bringing back the baby blue skies. 

A miracle, oh, she knew; 

The Stranger had come, it was true! 

And there he stood outside her door, 
The Stranger to leave no more. 
He held out his hand to the Spell, 
Knowing she had went through hell. 
He was going to remain and give her love 
The kind that comes from heaven above. 
He called her name, once then twice; 
She took a step, then thrice. 

The moment her hand touched his flesh; 
The second her eyes woven to his mesh; 
The hour came for a heart to rise 
Toward the beauty of the skies. 
The rain and sorrow ceased, 
The Spell let a single tear release. 
In joy, love, and admiration, 
For the castle and her restoration. 

The Stranger stood tall and firm. 
The Spell a lesson did learn: 
Love was, but a beautiful thing, 
Casting enchantment like a ring, 
Simpleness yet complexity. 
Firmness yet agility. 
Love was understood in heart and soul: 
This, the Spell purely did know.

A Lifetime 

by Lora Lamb 

There is a lifetime to enjoy one another. 

A lifetime of space so not to smother. 

A lifetime of moments given to share. 

A lifetime of wonderment and care. 

There is a forever to last. 

A forever to live beyond the past. 

A forever giving time meaning today. 

A forever to always stay. 

There is a lifetime to learn. 

A lifetime for those bridges to bum. 

A lifetime to touch and know. 

A lifetime to share and show. 

There is an always to concentrate. 

An always that surpasses any fate. 

An always to love, laugh, and live. 

An always for a lifetime to give. 

There is a lifetime between us. 

A lifetime to learn what we must. 

A lifetime to give all we can. 

A lifetime to be a woman and a man.

Putting Litter 
In Its Place 

We have a lovely campus in 
a scenic area, and our faculty and 
staff are committed to the envi- 
ronment. So let's do a better job 
of putting empty cans in the recy- 
cling bins conveniently located 
in every hallway. 

If your group is looking for 
a public service project, how 
about helping? Check classrooms 
for those cans left under seats 
(truly messy when they spill 
across the floor) and be a real 
to the bins. 

Instead of staring dejectedly 
into the wastebasket, help the 
environment by moving dis- 
carded cans to the bins. (It's not 
THAT threatening to pick up 
someone's discarded can, is it?) 

Let's live up to what we 
know. Next week, watch for 
some statistics on what recycling 
saves the environment.

The admissions office is currently organizing 
its Spring schedule for outstanding and informa- 
tive programs here on the Venango Campus. Hold 
on folks! It's going to be a busy few months. 

First of all, new to the campus will be the 
Health Career Options Fair. It will take place 
Thursday March 21 at Rhoades Center between 
6pm and 8pm. Representatives from surrounding 
colleges and universities who offer diverse Health 
degrees will be con campus for a college fair 
setting. We will also have on hand, professionals 
such as Chiroprators, Optpmetrists, and Pharma- 
cists to talk about their experience. Clarion Uni- 
versity representatives from the health fields will 
also attend. The health field projection for jobs is 
outstanding by the year 2000 and the Venango 
Campus will be leading the charge and vision. This 
event is free and open to the entire community. 
Please pass the word to your children, neighbors, 
and friends. 

Step up to your Future, out traditional high 
school night, will be held March 13 at 6:30 pm in 
Rhoades Center. This program is open to high 
school students and those who may have been out 
of school up to 3 years. We will discuss career 
options, degrees offered here and at Clarion. This 
is a great opportunity to start your education at 
Venango with just tuition. The trend of local 
students is to start here at Venango Campus. 

March 19 and April 25, Angel Muschweck 
and the admissions office will present "Do it Right" 
Financial Aid form night. The program will begin 
at 7:00 pm in Rhoades Center. It is available to 
current Venango students and any college bound 
students who will be enrolling in the Fall semester. 
Representatives will be on hand to walk through 
the Free Application for Federal Student Aid line 
by line. More details later, as we get closer to the 

Last but not least, our headliner program, 
"Back to your Future". It will be held on Thursday 
evening, April 1 1 at6:30pm. Since these programs 
began 2 years ago, we have averaged 56 prospec- 
tive students at the sessions. This is our Returning

Just A Ramble 

I use to just sit at my word processor at home 
and type about what ever came to mind. I haven't 
taken the time to treat myself to the relaxation of 
rambling lately so I thought I'd cheat and relax 
while I was getting paid to work. 

I found myself studying last night like you 
wouldn't believe. My family was even impressed. 
I was smiling and taking notes, gathering other 
books to reference. It was the best night of studying 
this semester. I hadn't even bothered to get up and 
shut my daughters bedroom door as she practiced 
her clarinet! ! 

Vince finally intereupted to see how long I'd 
be studying into the wee hours. I was done! I 
showed my paper of plans and data. I had planned 
my first planting of this years garden. 

You all know those intersections out there 
where you are suppose to stop far enough back for 
a large vehicle to turn the comer. The one intersec- 
tion in Franklin, Washington Crossing and Liberty 
St., is a pet peeve of mine. They spent all this 
money to waden the comer and it's still a problem. 
Instead they could have put a delay light to scoot 
those last few cars through or just simply ticketed 
people that didn't stop where they were suppose to. 

I don't get tired of hauling firewood all winter. 
My house is dirty and my hands are burnt and 
scarred from keeping the stove full but I like 
heating with wood. I wonder how old I will be 
when I can't do it any more. 

I want to always be joyful. No one is happy 
all the time but you can be joyful inside all the time. 
That's what I want. I also want some lunch. It's 
three-ish and I haven't eaten yet today. I did weigh 
myself and I gained 1 pound. Only nine more to go. 

My tipi fell down from all this snow. When 
I die, they will bum the tipi with me inside. Shit 
there is probably a law against that. Wonder what 
they will do with me? Can't say I believe, if I write 
it down, they'll do as I say. My daughter doesn't do 
what I say now, why would she when I'm gone. 

Okay Okay I'll ramble at home next time.

Hawk Goes To School 

It was just like any other day, at first. Get in 
the car and drive to Venango Campus to work. But 
then, Wendy Girtman had a brief encounter she 
won't forget. 

While driving through Cranberry, there was a 
thud, something had hit her car. She stopped and 
went to investigate. Behind her auto was a small 
bird on the side of the road, knocked out. Wendy 
bundled the stunned bird and brought it to campus. 

Richard Krear, a local falconer, was called to 
Montgomery Hall. After a chase and recapture, it 
was determined the Sharp-Shinned Hawk was 
uninjured and should be returned to his natural 
habitat, near where he was injured. 

Wendy's friend was released from the car, 
flew off and within the hour was feasting on a 

Computer Virus 
Infects Campus 

If you are not yet aware, this has been a 
problem for a while. Computer viruses can be 
spread from a disk to a computer, from a computer 
to a disk and from traveling disks. You may have 
a virus on your computer at home that could 
reinfect our campus computers and vice-versa. 
You should consider this computer virus every bit 
as contagious as a human virus. 

The campus is taking steps to help protect it's 
equipment from virus infection and your coopera- 
tion will be necessary for us to be successful. These 
procedures will also help to protect your equipment 
and information. Lou Adelson has provided infor- 
mation in the Computer Lab in Frame that will help 
students to identify and disinfect their disks. A 
different procedure is in place in the Learning 
Center (210 Montgomery) that also houses com- 
puters for student use. BEFORE PUTTING 

Presently, this process is a bit labor intensive 
but it is the best possible for the equipment now 
available. The computer committee continues to 
work on upgrades that will allow the anti-virus 
procedure to be less labor intensive for students. 
Your cooperation at this time will make this tran- 
sition period less stressful for all of us on campus. 

"To Be A Hero" 

Recently, heavyweight con- 
tender Tommy Morrison tested 
positive for the HIV virus. He 
was shocked when he heard the 
news and said, "I thought I was 
bullet proof. I thought I had a 
better chance to win the lottery 
than to contract AIDS." 

He blamed himself and 
hinted that his promiscuous life- 
style was likely the reason. He 
also said, "To my younger fans, 
don't see me as a role model, but 
as an individual who had a chance 
to be a role model and blew it, 
who made immature, irrational, 
and irresponsible decisions — 
decisions that one day could cost 
me my life." 

I see a big difference from 
him and Magic Johnson , who 
when he found out he had AIDS 
a few years ago, basically just 
told the public to"use protection" 

What a guy!! And for that many 
made him out to be a hero. 

Athletes do have tremen- 
dous demands put on them (i.e., 
to be a hero, role model, etc.). 
They are human beings like ev- 
eryone else and sometimes to "be 
a hero" is asking a bit too much. 
That doesn't mean they can't do 
the right thing. In a society that 
is probably the most promiscu- 
ous in the history of civilization, 
a few years ago Johnson did not 
do the right thing. 

One last quote from 
Morrison. "I ask everyone out 
there not to say a prayer for me, 
but for the true victims of this 
disease—the HIV-infected chil- 
dren. Ihadachoice. They don't." 

Ironically, in admitting his 
mistakes, and asking not to be a 
role-model, he become exactly

that you really believe in." 

"If you really want to solve 
problems, do it." 

So said Erie Mayor Joyce 
Savocchio on Friday, February 9, 
at the Meadville Days Inn during a 
j oint retreat of the community lead- 
ership programs Regional Vision, 
Leadership Erie, and Leadership 

Riitl pr r'niintv Senior Accounting Major, Susan M Harry pictured with Erie Mayor Joyce Savocchio 

And she should know. She brought her vision of revitalizing the Erie waterfront, downtown Erie, 
and Erie's civic pride to her post as mayor, and a turnaround is happening every day. More and more, 
Erie's citizens are following her lead: to defeat negativism, to break turf boundaries, and to build 

As a 22-year old college senior, I was awestruck by the achievements and the enthusiasm of the 
retreat's speakers. In addition to Savocchio, Margot Copeland spoke of Cleveland's rise to the status of 
the "New American City" and Larry Yatch spoke of Pittsburgh's recovery from the "Pothole Capital of 
the World" and smoggy image of the '70s. 

Three themes surfaced repeatedly throughout these talks. They are vision, leadership, and 

The vision to see what needs to be done. The leadership to do what needs to be done rather than 
wait for someone else to do it. The sense of community pride that inspires cooperation, collaboration, 
and ultimately success that wouldn't be possible without it. 

Think you can't be a leader? Then think about this: As Bill Steiner of the Northwest Pennsylvania 
Regional Planning and Development Commission pointed out, Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie, and Mary 
Kay were "just people who had a great idea." 

The next question you might ask is, "What can I do now to help my community and develop my 
leadership skills?" 

If you live in Clarion, Venango, Forest, Warren, Mercer, or Crawford County, are breathing, and 
have a burning desire to make a difference, you can join the next Regional Vision class. This program, 
which runs from September to May, allows you to leam what your leadership style is, how you can use 
your talents for the good of the community, and how to have fun in the process!

Please Consider This 

The next time you see someone who has no 
obvious physical disability parking in a handi- 
capped space, with either a valid placard or a 
handicapped license plate, please take the time to 
consider the possibility that the individual may 
have an unseen problem before you publicly hu- 
miliate the person by chastising him or her for 
parking in a "wheelchair" space. 

People with certain heart and lung problems, 
arthritis and severe back injuries can't walk long 
distances, especially when laden down with a 
heavy book bag, without risking further illness or 

Perhaps instead of adding to their misery by 
chiding them because of our assumption that they 
are not entitled to park in the handicapped space, 
we should applaud those brave people for attending 
school despite their discomfort. At the same time, 
ask yourself if you would like to trade places with 
a disabled person merely to have a parking place 
closer to your destination. 

from The Editor 

I have had good response to my plea for 
Venango Voice newspersons. (I hate having to be 
politically correct.) 

I want to welcome and give my heartfelt 
thanks to Tammy Heman, Jan Pazant, and Miranda 
Swarm, who have volunteered to jump in with both 
feet and add flowers and fire to our paper. 

I went to the Vienna Boys Choir performance 
at the Franklin High School on March 1 . Since then 
I have seen nothing in our local papers as to the turn 
out or the quality of the show or even a "thank you" 
to the persons instrumental in providing such an 
opportunity to this community. 

Thank you Rev Jay Schultz and the VCHS 
Drama Club; Oil City Arts Council; Franklin Arts 
Council and all the individuals who volunteered 
their time to bring this production to us. 

Does The Government 
Work For Us? 

While doing a group project for Dr. Ruber's 
business writing class, we needed more informa- 
tion concerning our topic on HIV/Aids. Where 
could we go? Well, we decided to refer to the 
government for information. At first we were 
really wondering if they would help us at all. 
Needless to say we tried and in return we found that 
the government isn't so bad. They in fact were very 
helpful. The majority of the people in this world 
don't realize how resourceful the government is. 
As a group we were very impressed by all the help 
we received. So to pass the word on, if you ever 
need anything that they may be able to assist you 
with don't hesitate to contact them. I think you'll be 
very pleased that you did. 

As a result of us contacting them, they faxed 
us a 34 page document that has been useful to us. 
We received it by simply calling an 800 number 
fi-om a touch tone phone. I must say it was as easy 
as A,B,C. Well, remember to always keep an open 
mind, because like they say, "you can't judge a book 
by it's cover."

The songs performed by the Austrian boys 
were familiar. I could shut my eyes and remember 
another time. When the little operetta began and 
the (I'm guessing) 6 year old boys came out dressed 
in girls clothing, wigs and patent leather shoes, I 
was amazed. True professionals. 

We are all suppose to be professionals. We are 
all very human. Show your compassion, patience, 
brotherly love, and you will be reflecting the Joy 
of Lord.

What Does Your Soul/Spirit Need? 

by Dr. Barb Reagle 

This Christmas I received three books on "The 
Soul". I wondered, was that a coincidence; was life 
trying to tell me something? Well, 1 took the hint 
and started to think seriously about what my unique 
soul/spirit needs. The more I thought about it the 
more I realized, we really don't think about this type 
of thing enough. Most of us rush through life, 
racing up the career ladder. Why? To get more 
money. Why? So we can buy more "stuff. Is life 
one big accumulation of stuff?? 

So 1 invite you to take time out and think about 
the following questions: 

1. What does your unique Soul/Spirit/ 
Essence need? (Use whichever word your frame- 
work fits with the best.) Make a written list. 

2. To help you with the above question, 
answer this one: What were you doing in the last 
year that you feel your True Spirit was being 
expressed? Make a list. 

3. Now the hard part. Are you feeding your 
Soul? Does your life contain enough elements of 
the above? Don't get depressed! Most of the 
time it doesn't, so that's where your future 
planning and visioning comes in! 

Well, thanks for joining me in this quest to 
make our lives more "Soulful". Good Luck! You 
can do it! 

P.S. If anyone would like to share their list 
wdth me (anonymously?) feel free to drop it in my 
mail box. As I've shared this exercise with my close 
friends, 1 am amazed at the similarities in their 
responses. Perhaps there is a central theme in this 
quest for all of us - something like love, simplicities 
of life... not sure. Need to think more on that one. 

Maybe an updated article in another issue of 
the Voice? 

To Whom it May Concern: 

This letter is in reference to the lecture I 
presented on Thursday, February 22 for the Stu- 
dent Success Series on nutrition. I understand there 
are some people upset about my talk on nutrition 
and drugs. I wanted to set the record straight on a 
few matters. 

First, this is an institution of Higher Education 
and the teacher's primary purpose is to teach the 
subject matter for which they were hired. Along 
with that, it is understood that a teacher should not 
undermine another teacher's subject matter. If I did 
that during my talk, I apologize, as that was not my 
intention. I'm not sure exactly what it is I said that 
upset some people, but it is probably one of 2 

One of the statements I made was that "drugs 
do not cure." I realize not that was an oversimpli- 
fication, and that there are drugs that cure. For 
instance, penicillin does cure some infections. What 
I really meant was that, in many cases, drugs give 
the illusion of curing while merely treating the 

Let's look at cancer, for instance, which was 
the main topic of my discussion. There have been 
cases where drugs have eliminated the cancer, and 
the person went on to lead a normal, healthy life 
with no greater chance of getting cancer than 
anybody else. However, I was talking about what 
happens in most cases of cancer, once they have 
allegedly been removed. It comes back, and I'm not 
talking 40 years later at the age of 85. Very often, 
it comes back within 10 years of having first been 
treated. Why? Because the symptom was treated 
and not the cause. Do you know what the AMA's 
definition of having "cured" cancer is? If the 
person is still alive 5 years after having been treated 
for it, the AMA claims to have "cured" the cancer. 
(This is not a subjective statement on my part. That 
is the AMA's definition of having cured cancer). I 
guess it depends on your definition of cure. I for 
one do not consider that a cure. 


(To Whom it May Concern, continued) 

To reiterate, I should not have made such a 
bold statement with respect to drugs. I made the 
statement in a way that I felt was best to get my 
point across. 

The other statement I made was that I believe 
there are cures for cancer. No, there is no scientific 
evidence; I can only speak from my experiences. 
Even if it is true, we may never scientifically prove 

I would also like to point out that there is a 
difference between intentionally undermining an- 
other teacher and speaking about what you believe 
in (which sometimes has the consequence of inter- 
fering with something that another teacher(s) es- 

Let me give you an example. In my Statistics 
class (Math 221) we are conducting hypothesis 
testing. In a nutshell, hypothesis testing is where 
one collects data in attempt to make a scientific 
conclusion about something. In some cases, one 
may "hope" not to be able to make a conclusion. (It 
depends on your point of view). Either way, it is 
done in a scientific manner, and if you "come up 
with the evidence, you convict." 

What if another teacher gave a talk on TV 
violence, i.e., that is was bad for kids. A lot of 
people would agree with that. Now, whether or not 
there have been studies done on TV violence, one 
might very well advocate that TV violence ad- 
versely effects kids. They are not necessarily going 
to wait for any studies on the topic. This true 
whether you are raising your kids or giving a talk 
on the matter. 

Would I have the right to tell that teacher they 
are undermining my Statistics class because I told 
my class, they cannot make such a statement until 
they "prove" it. Of course not. Now, it would be 
different if that teacher told his/her audience "Mr 
Grenci is telling you to conduct a hypothesis test, 
and you should not have to so that in real life, so he 
is wrong." Yes, that I would get upset over. 
Certainly, in any setting (giving a lecture, parenting, 
being a good friend, etc.), there will be people who 
do not subscribe to having to do a hypothesis test to 
confirm their beliefs on something. 

Coincidentally, in last Monday's Statistics 
class, I pointed out to the students that when you 
make a conclusion, it is understood that a mistake 
may have been made. For example, you may have 
said you have proven something to be true, but 
acknowledge (at least silently) that you might be 
wrong. One student exclaimed "you mean it's just 
like real life." She was exactly right.

Adam & Eve & Herbert 

You've see the signs around campus and you're 
scratching your head; what could it be? 

The last show in the Applause Series, spon- 
sored by the Campus Activities Board and Parker/ 
Hunter, is a sweet love song and a subtle satire on 
the war between the sexes. 

Two plays-five characters-hundreds of laughs, 
will be presented at Cranberry High School on 
Saturday April 13 at 8:00 pm. 

Meet the first man and the first woman and 
find out that they haven't changed a bit. 

Herbert & Muriel are a funny-bone tickling 
duet... a hilarious look at how couples communi- 
cate when they have failed to communicate. 

The performers are members of the Alpha- 
Omega Players of the Repertory Theater of America. 
AOP has traveled over four million miles and 
presented over 13,000 performances across the

Beyond Obsession 

by Lora Lamb 

I'm in a mental institution because of a break- 
down. I'm a single mother of three. Not that my 
children have anything to do with my breakdown. 
On the contrary, two men are the problem. At least, 
I thought they were two separate men: Somehow 
my mind made them one. 

My psychologists wants me to write every- 
thing I remember of these gentlemen. "Getting 
them straight is the first step to going home, 
Genevieve." That's me, here alone for being 
permitted to reminisce. 

I have a longing to return to the past and 
conjure things I would say and do there to change 
my life's course, but the course only remains. My 
mother married young and was happy till her death 
sixty years later, but I've been through many men. 
My children, all three, have different fathers and 
none of them are among the two men who caused 
me to be here. 

Surely, the tragedy of a lost love (or loves) 
is not a part of growing up. ' This," Dr. Church 
said to me. "Is how you must think, Genevieve, at 
all times. There must be no regrets." Yet my life 
is full of bitter memories, leaving a bad taste in my 

I am twenty-five, but all the confusion started 
when I was sixteen and meet this handsome dark 
haired boy of the same age,Doyle Graff, but people 
called him Do, because he'd do anything. 

He stole wacker furniture off a woman's 
porch only to take it back the next day and leave a 
note of thanks. Doyle- Do- even stole a large 
American flag waving from a pole above a restau- 
rant. The cops didn't get far in the investigation and 
the manager just bought another flag. No one knew 
who did it until Do showed me where he'd buried 
the flag in the woods. 

He showed me a room in his mom's house 
which looked like a storage shed for the highway 
department. There were stop signs, curve signs, 
and many others he'd stolen over the years. 

Do was creative for a typical small town 
heavy metal teenager. He was into Metalica T- 
shirts and leather jackets. Hehadtatoos. A lot of 
tatoos, especially dragons. He got one on his upper 
left arm one night while head banging with his 
long, black hair flying everywhere. He drank and 
smoked cigarettes and pot a lot. He was always 
getting arrested for public drunkenness and under- 
age drinking. His record was thick, preventing him 
from finding a good job. Do tried, though, but 
small towns don't have much to offer when you're 
a delinquent sixteen year old. 

I knew Do well after dating for a year, but 
we split up. I ended up pregnant with the first child. 
Sometime after the birth of my second I got mar- 
ried, though the man wasn't either child's father. 
After three years of college my marriage of four 
years went dead. I found out later I was pregnant 
with my husband's child, but didn't tell him. I went 
through a divorce, having a baby boy, and getting 
a bachelor's degree in accounting on my own. 

This is the point I met the second man, 
Walter Tarr. I first saw him in the college library 
rummaging through art books. I could have sworn 
he was Doyle. Same long black hair, a heavy metal 
T-shirt with the sleeves cut off, a tatoo of a dragon 
on his upper left arm and a leather jacket hanging 
on the chair. I just stood there all stupefied. 

I finally got the nerve to walk up to him. 
"Hey, don't I know you?" 

He looked up at me with big brown eyes. 
I almost fainted. Doyle'seyes were the exact color. 
Sure, the man before me had a mustache and go-T, 
but any man could grow them. My mind was 

"Walter. But I don't think you know me. 
I don 't know too many lovely ladies like yourself. ' ' 
His words didn't sound like words Do would use. 
They were scholarly and Do's voice wasn't deep. 
But people grow up, my mind's voice argued. 

I shut it up and let the situation take over. 
I was meeting a man who looked like the man I 
loved as a teenager. I didn't want to ruin it. I almost 
called him Do, but retracted by asking, "A Moiui- 
tain Dew?"

Russia & USA 

Similar Problems and Solutions 

It was the most interesting accounting class I 
ever attended. (No offense intended Greg) Even 
with the language barrier, an interpretor was used, 
the information shared about the economic and 
social problems in Russia, are very similar to what 
we faced as a new country and problems we must 
address as times continue to change. 

The Russians trade with 63 different coun- 
tries, following the economic examples of America, 
Japan and Germany. They must convert to the 
world accounting system and make major banking 
reforms. With privitization, they accomplished 
pushing 40-60 million people into the "below 
poverty" level. Social problems escalate. 

What best to do with natural resources? What 
path of technology to follow for the betterment of 
the country and the people? How to deal with 
unemployment and what is the best way to maxi- 
mize human resources?

The conclusion of: 

Beyond Obsession 

by Lora Lamb 

I was meeting a man who looked like the man 
I loved as a teenager. I didn't want to ruin it. I 
almost called him Do, but retracted by asking, "A 
Mountain Dew?" Starting off a great three year 

Walter loved my children, picnics at the 
zoo and movies. Gradually, his college classes 
took him away, but the children and 1 gave him 
space which was easy since he lived in his own 
apartment. He did tattooing to pay the rent and 
made jewelry from topaz stones and silk woven 
bands. He was a very creative man. 

I wondered about Do, because Walter 
looked so much like him. I even tried to contact 
Doyle, but no one knew where he went or saw him 

I believe this is where my mind flipped. 
Where I began to think Walter really was Doyle. 
My mind was totally convinced. They looked alike 
from the hair to the dragon tatoo. Sure Walter was 
older looking, but people grow up. Walter wasn't 
a thief, but- my mind said- people change and Do' s 
creative energy for thievery could have been turned 
for creative good. 

During the last six months of my relation- 
ship with Walter, I'd ask him questions only Doyle 
would know the answer. When alter denied know- 
ing anything I'd call him a liar and cry. My mind 
explained Walter's denials. He didn't want me to 
know who he truly was because maybe he was in a 
witness protection program. Thus changing his 
identity and name. 

A memory interupts me now. A conversa- 
tion between not only Doyle and I, but Walter and 
I. The words almost being exact. 

Do and I sat by the creek tossing rocks in 
the water. Walter and I were in the park feeding the 
ducks by the pond. 

"Your really quiet. What's wrong?" Both 

"Nothing. I'm just thinking." As I think 
back I believe I shielded my eyes from the sun in 
both conversations. 

"Bout what?" 
I looked away, each time to my right. 
Walter and Doyle, years apart, were at my left. 

"What?" Both chuckled. 

"You don't want to know." 

"Yeah. I do." Both got on their feet to 
squat and lean their elbows on their knees. 

I sighed in both conversations. 

Thinking now makes me envision Walter 
and Do at the scene. "I think of you a lot. More 
than I should. I feel something. I don't know what, 
but it's there. I like being with you. You know, all 
that stuff." 

"Stuff. You call love 'stuff ." Walter as 
well as Doyle replied. 

"Yeah, but I don't want to pressure you." 

"Your not. I think it's cool you like me." 
Walter used the exact words Doyle had years 

"But I have this feeling it could go beyond 
obsession or like." 

' 'Then let it. " Walter had taken me in his 
arms and Doyle had only kissed me. The only 
difference in the conversations. 

Walter ended being fed up with my accu- 
sations and left. 

To this day I haven't seen either men 
together. My psychologist says she's spoke with 
both men and can tell they are different and living 
in different states. 

"Have you seen the two together, Dr. 

"No." Is all she could say. 

I know time is short when it comes to 
doing fun things, but I encourage all stu- 
dents, staff and faculty to submit a note, 
story, poem or article to the Voice before 
semester is over.

Home Huddle 

by Michelle Knoch 

"Get back here and pick up 
your coat." "Please take your 
dirty dishes to the sink." "It's not 
my turn to take out the garbage." 
"I don't want to change the cat 
box right now." Add this kaos to 
a single parent home with two 
teenagers, two grade-schoolers, 
and Mom in school full-time her- 
self; the question comes up, "Is 
there any hope for sanity to sur- 
vive?" My dear God in heaven, I 
hope so! The following is the 
general scheme I have developed 
and attempt to follow: 

After having a very poor 
success rate at trying to run things 
myself as well as feeling drained 
by and unappreciated for my ef- 
forts. I have come to discover 
that the more my kids feel like 
they are my partners instead of 
my pawns., the more co-opera- 
tion they are willing to offer. 
Giving them a voice in the matter 
and respecting their opinions as 
well as providing choices for them 
gives them a feeling of being in 
control of their ovm role in the 

A "Home Huddle" is what 
we chose to call our family meet- 
ings. This helps imply the mes- 
sage of being a team for develop- 
ing team-work tactics. The plan 
is to have allotted time every 
week to meet and discuss what- 
ever is going on with everyone. 
A special treat just for meeting 
night is an added bonus that also 
helps encourage attendance. 

Everyone has the opportu- 
nity to say what they like and 
don't like using, "I messages" so 

as not to be blaming others. Then 
everyone can offer their feelings 
on why they like or don't like the 
same issue. With everyone's point 
of view made clear, it is much 
easier to come up with a plan of 
action to deal with whatever the 
circumstances. All can agree with 
or at least understand why it has 
to be so. It is understood from the 
beginning that Mom still has the 
final say-so but acceptance of 
things not entirely negotiable 
comes much easier. 

Group effort co-operation 
is not the only topic that merits 
discussion. While gathered to- 
gether, good happenings can be 
shared; compliments, praise, 
pleasant moments. If there is 
sadness or disappointment, sup- 
port and advice can be offered. 
Providing this common ground 
of understanding, it is possible to 
pick up on cues throughout the 
week that can benefit fi-om a word 
of encouragement or a gentle re- 
minder of guidelines agreed upon 
in the Huddle. 

This system by no means 
has solved all our problems. Kaos 
is still a frequent visitor but we 
are able to function from day to 
day a bit more smoothly, not to 
mention having gained a better 
level of communication and im- 
proving everyone's self-esteem. 
We have made our family goal, 
"To help each other learn and 
grow." I feel the bond we share 
is continuing to become even 
stronger and that we are better 
prepared to deal with whatever 
life throws at us. As far as sanity 
goes, I think I'm just as happy 
without it. Who wants a dull life

Volume 22 No. 27 

April 8, 1996 
Clarion University of PA 

Applause Series ' Last Show 
A Must See Performance 

Sponsored by the Campus Activities Board of the Venango Campus of Clarion University and 
Parker/Hunter. Adam & Eve & Herbert, a double dip double-bill, will be presented at Cranberry High 
School on Saturday, April 13 at 8 pm. "The Diary of Adam & Eve," by Mark Twain, is the first act of 
the Broadway hit musical, "The Apple Tree." Music and lyrics are by famed composers of "Fiddler on 
the Roof," Jerry Bock and Sheldon Hamick. 

"Adam & Eve," according to Emory Lewis of "Cue" Magazine, is a "sweet love song and a subtle 
satire." Adam, played by Matt Mitchell, is delighted v^th his private world and is busy naming creatures 
(such as flyers, swimmers, and hoppers), when along comes an enchanting creature named Eve, played 
by Jodi Ivey, who sets him straight on these names. For instance, she knows that a parrot is a parrot, not 
a loud-mouthed gat-beak! She also knows that huts are made for decorating and grass for mowing-by 
Adam of course. Eve meets her match, however, when Todd Zivin appears as the fast-talking snake. 
Drexel H Riley, artistic director and founder of RTA, and Dan Bakkedahl, artistic resident at RTA, direct 
this simple, wry and captivating tale of the first man and first woman. 

"I'm Herbert," the second act of the double-bill, is by award winning playwright, Robert Anderson, 
of "Tea and Sympathy" fame. It's taken ft-om "You Know I Can't Hear When the Water's Running," one 
of the all-time long-run hits of the American stage; over 750 performances on Broadway starring George 
Grizzard and Eileen Heckart. "I'm Herbert," according to Dan Bakkedahl, is "a hilarious look at how 
this elderly couple communicates when they have failed to communicate." Herbert, played by Todd, and 
Muriel played by Aimee Bye, happily scramble their memories of past marriages with just the right touch 
of wistfulness. 

The performers are members of the Alpha-Omega Players of the Repertory Theater of America, a 
nationally acclaimed touring company, headquartered in Rockport, Texas. RTA/AOP has traveled over 
four million miles and presented over 13,000 performances across the United States and Canada. 

For ticket information call 8 14-676-659 1 . Ticket prices are $ 1 for adults, $8 for children under 1 8 
and Seniors. Tickets will be half off the above price if purchased by April 1 1. 


This week's TUTOR OF 
THE WEEK is Kim Bish. Kim 

excels at tutoring a variety of 
courses, especially several maths. 
Kim is often found working with 
students on her own time. Please 
thank her. Kim exhibits her lead- 
ership skills in many ways around 
campus. Observe and learn from 
her to be better prepared for 
YOUR tomorrow. 

The end of the semester will 
be here in 5 weeks. At that time, 
professors will expect all projects 
to be finished. Look at your 
syllabus. Look at your weekly 
schedule. Are you on target with 
the deadlines you set for yourself 
for each project? Ifyou are ahead, 
congratulations! If you are on 
target, stay with it. If you are 
behind, NOW is the time to get 
back on schedule. This is YOUR 
education. Make the most of it. 
Keep your goals in sight. 

It is a long road to gradua- 
tion, but you are capable of get- 
ting there. Some days it takes 
pure determination just to keep 
going, but your future depends 
on it. There will be times you 
will wonder if you should con- 
tinue to come to college, but you 
are worth it. Your family may

The tutors are looking to re- 
cruit a few more good students to 
tutor. If you see students being 
tutored, observe their behavior. 
What you will see are very intel- 
ligent people working together 
for a common purpose. The tutor 
is a very bright person who re- 
ceived a good grade in the subject 
and is willing to help the tutee get 
over the hurdles. The student 
who is being tutored is also very 
smart because he/she knows a 
few important things. The first 
thing the tutee knows is he/she 
has difficulty conquering the 
material to be learned. The sec- 
ond thing the tutee knows is that 
getting help immediately can save 
him/her from a bad grade or 
worse. The third thing the tutee 
knows is where to find the tutor. 
The fourth thing the tutee knows 
is once you know where to find 
the tutor, the next step is to GO 
It's your choice. Ifyou are hav- 
ing difficulties with a subject and 
choose to believe the silly notion 
that you have to be stupid to go to 
a tutor, then you will never be 
able to envision yourself as one 
of the intelligent people who went 
for help when you needed it. On 
the other hand, if you come for 
tutorial assistance, you will help 
to dispel the myth. 

A Moment of Joy 

by Jan Gourley 

Today I had a rugged day. When I awoke, I 
knew it would be arduous. This week and the next 
are going to be tough here at school. Today in my 
evening class, a rough draft of my research paper 
is due. Wednesday, I not only have a speech in the 
morning, but I have an important test in the after- 
noon. I have a test coming up next week that will 
be as difficult as the one on Wednesday. Then, of 
course, there's a book review that's due soon, which 
I have barely started. 

All of this is enough to keep my mind reeling, 
but the major annoyance to contend with is my ex- 
husband! I had to go to another hearing this 
morning. It was nothing serious, just more bicker- 
ing over the kids, but certainly enough to dim 
today's lovely sunshine. 

I left the courthouse, the site of so much 
malice, feeling the weight of the world on my 
shoulders. I finished my rough draft, then went to 
school early this afternoon. Of course, when I left 
class, it was pouring down rain. The large drops 
were hitting me, getting me soggy, making me 
think of the Carpenters' song Rainy Days and 
Mondays. I really was down. Once home, I cooked 
supper, worked on more homework, then got ready 
to leave for the college again. 

When I walked out of the house, I was struck 
by the most amazing sight. There was a huge, full- 
arc rainbow so close, it felt as though I could touch 
it. I urged my son to come out and look. We 
enjoyed it together for a few minutes arm in arm, 
until I had to leave. 

I drove two blocks all the while watching the 
rainbow (probably closer than the road). At the 
comer stop sign, I was able to get an even better 
view than before. The colors had intensified and 
looking left, the base of the rainbow was engulfing 
the courthouse. That building has always been 
impressive to me, but amidst a rainbow, it was 
awesome! The beauty of this vision erased most of 
the feelings of despair that I had felt in that structure 
earlier today. It seemed to me to be a gift of hope, 
a way of letting me know I've chosen the right path 
for my life. 

Somehow, after being so delighted by this 
apparition, my burdens were lightened, my troubles 
seemed to diminish, my attitude changed, and for 
a moment, my soul soared. I wish everyone had 
experienced this. We all need to feel the enchant- 
ment of that instant, to savor it, and to be able to 
hold something so precious more often.

Every one is so busy they tend to forget the 
bright spot of the day, week, month, year. It is 
about Spring. It is about growth. It is about 
knowing that "this too shall pass." 

We tend to load up on the caffine while we 
study and try to fit all 200 hours worth of work into 
a 24 hour day. 

Before bed and before those tests, try a cup of 
herbal tea to help you relax. Be gone stress! 

Congratulations to Molly McFadden for being crowned Spring Court Queen, and to 
all of those elected to the court. 

As co-chair of the dance committee, I would like to apologize to all of those people who were 
offended by having to sign their names to the Spring Court ballots. Let me say, first, that the votes were 
completely confidential. Only my co-chair, Karey Mallory, saw the ballots. She did not talk to anyone 
about who voted for who, or how many votes anybody had (even though we were both asked, repeatedly) . 
The fact is that there has to be some kind of check system for us to know if someone, either accidentally 
or intentionally voted more than once. I would like to remind you tat this is also how voting is done for 
student senate and homecoming. Yet there were no complaints received about these. 

Due to the large number of complaints, there will not be a spring court next spring semester. Any 
rumors that you may have heard, such as any one person being in the lead by a certain number of votes, 
were just rumors started by students who did not have any factual knowledge of the votes. 

The large number of rumors along with the larger number of rude comments noted on the ballots 
and even separate pieces of paper placed in the ballot box suprised me. It did more than suprise me, it 
made it clear to me that a very high level of immaturity exists among the students on this campus. 

This is my opinion and not necessarily that of the Campus Activities Board(CAB). Again, if I have 
offended anyone, nothing said or done was meant to be a personal attack or to be offensive. 

Thank you for your participation, both to the court and to those who voted.

Can You Imagine 

Salisbury State University 
in Maryland has 2500 live lob- 
sters trucked in from Maine for 
Lobster night, and offers rattle- 
snake chili and elk and buffalo 
meat during Country Western 
Evening. Each Monday through 
Thursday night the chefs prepare 
gourmet buffet meals and stu- 
dents dine by candlelight at linen 
draped tables as they listen to 
instrumental music. 

At Lebanon Valley College 
in Pennsylvania, a typical dinner 
includes six entrees, an 18-foot 
salad bar, deli meats and cheeses, 
fresh fruits, soup, five types of 
freshly baked bread, ice cream, 
frozen yogurt, other desserts and 
more than 50 beverages. To match 
the modem menu, the college 
revamped its dining hall by re- 
placing the paneling with wall- 
paper, by carpeting the floors and 
by adding brass chandeliers. 

What $$ Do You 
Expect To Make 

Student Leader magazine, Spring 
1995, shows what some expecta- 
tions of earnings after graduation 
(poll taken in Fall 1994) 
44% - $20,000 to 25,000 
33% - $25,000 to $30,000 
10% - expect more than $40,000 
immediately after graduation!

istration Office in Frame, through Tuesday.

So Longy Farewell, AdioSy 
ChoWy TaTuy Goodbye! 

I feel like I'm giving up my own ch ild as I leave 
Venango Campus with my Associates Degree. 
(I am going on to get my Bachelors Degree) 

I have enjoyed working in room 205MHfor 
the past two years as staff and then Editor of the 
Venango Voice. Everyone has been kind. 

I can see big things happening with your 
paper as new staff comes aboard and more technol- 
ogy and resources are available. Help the new 
Editor, Tammy Hernan. with your feedback and 
continue to submit your articles, news and fiction, 
so the paper can reflect this campus. 

Those of you that will be on campus next term 
will be faced with the remodeling of Montgomery 
Hall, all for the betterment of the campus, so be 
patient with small inconveniences. 

Those of us who are parents know that to have 
patience all the time is next to saint hood. Daily 
practice of patience does make it easier to deal with 
all those unimportant things that make you blow 
up. Like having to wait in the express line at the 
grocery store; following a Sunday driver when you 
only have five minutes to get to class on time; not 
finding a place to park because of the construction 
workers that will be here. Try a little patience! 

Take time to say hello to everyone you see; 
smile like you are the happiest (or most senile) 
person on earth and listen to the quiet, it will make 
your days spar-kling and full. 

Thank you all for adding to my life and 
encouraging me with your words and your friend- 
ship. I am definitely a richer person today.
